Hello from OBX!  I am on vacation this week trying to avoid the sharks, I’ll be stocked for next week!!


Mullet Apiaries 

Have you seen our new embossed glass jars? We are offering it in a one-pound jar for a limited time only so pick one up today. So pretty! Independence Day is this weekend so be sure to stock up on all your holiday needs here at the Local Bounty. How about honey drizzled on ice cream for a simple but yummy dessert? Try marinating those Ashcraft Acres lamb kabobs with a little honey, slightly warmed, some lemon juice, plain yogurt and some chopped mint for an hour or so before laying them on the grill. Or just brew one of those Hillbippie teas, add a little honey to taste and pour over ice. Be sure to check out all our vendors for good, local food. Happy Fourth of July to everyone!

How to Cold Brew

It may be hot outside, but that doesn’t mean you need to give up drinking coffee. That’s where cold brewing comes in. Ordinary brewing with hot water releases acid and oils that can create a bitter taste in the cooled cup. Cold brew is different. It’s just what it sounds like — coffee steeped in cold water rather than hot to yield a flavorful concentrated coffee with a smooth flavor. We like to make a big batch of it at the beginning of the week to keep in the fridge, then mix with cold milk or water and ice.

Ready to make it at home? All you really need is a bucket and some sort of straining method, such as a cheesecloth or a mesh strainer lined with a coffee filter. For small batches, try using your French Press, or purchase a Toddy Cold Brewer at https://toddycafe.com.

For a large batch, combine 6 ounces (1-1/2 heaping cups) coarse-ground coffee (French press grind setting) with 3-1/2 cups cold water. Make sure to get all of the coffee wet. Cover the container and let sit at room temperature for 12 hours, then strain into a clean glass container. This concentrate will last in the refrigerator for about 2 weeks.

Here at Pink Elephant, we love to use a light roast coffee like our Tanzania Peaberry for a fruity cold brew; a dark roast will yield a smokier, earthier cold brew. Pro tip: Always use good-tasting water for your cold brew.

To serve: Combine 1/2 cup of the coffee concentrate with equal pats water or milk (how much you add depends upon how strong you like your coffee). Pour over ice. Add cream as desired.
