Partner Product: Treehouse Milk
Founded by two women in 2015, Treehouse Milk makes fresh, pure nut milk out of Grant Park in Atlanta. Treehouse currently makes ten different blends of milk -- from organic cashew milk, to organic almond milk, to macadamia milk, to the original Georgia Pecan Milk. Milk is pressed in small batches, with attention to quality and ingredients – free from carrageenan, gums, and other additives found in big brand nut milk. We make every attempt to reduce waste throughout our process, including composting our food waste to a jar reuse program in partnership with our customers.
Storage Tips- Beets
When you bring you beets home be sure to cut the leaves off before storing them in your fridge--the leaves zap moisture away from the root. Cut the leaves about two inches from the top of the beet. Store root bulbs and leaves separately in bags in your refrigerator. Use the leaves within two days and the bulbs within 7-10 days.
Don't throw those leaves away! Here is a delicious way to make sure no part of your beet goes to waste. This can be served as a side dish or over rice with an egg as the main course.
