I Love NYou

Celebrate your love for the local, with our I LOVE NY Valentine’s Day Package.

We start with our house made Bacon Jam, a low-and-slow cooked blend of  D’Artagnan’s Applewood Smoked Bacon, and Brooklyn’s own Olso Roasters Coffee. Its sweet and spicy flavors and unique texture make for a perfect condiment to most cheeses. Kinderhook Creek, made by Old Chatham in the Hudson Valley, is an all-sheep Camembert style, unctuous and decadent, sweet and just enough salt.

Because no Valentine’s Celebration is complete without chocolate, we’ve chosen the Nunu Chocolates Beer Box, a 6 pack of truffles blended with some of the best microbrews around. Wash it all down with our Borough’s own Brooklyn Brewery Local 2, a Belgian-style Strong Dark Ale, a touch sweet and malty, a dessert in and of itself. The 750ml bottle is big enough to share, nearly as strong as wine, and full of effervescent bubbles.

1 4oz Jar House Made Bacon Jam  * 1/4 lb Kinderhook Creek
1 750 ml of Brooklyn Local 2 * 6-pack Nunu Chocolates Beer Box

All for just $50.

Add your choice of fresh bread from Sullivan Street or Roberta’s for the complete I LOVE NY experience! Pre-order at the cheese counter!

We’re Jammin’… we hope you like Jammin’ too

Saturday, January 14th, we welcome The Stand Brooklyn, for a special tasting of their Winter Seasonal fruit jams and garnishes.

Sister and brother team, Nathalie and Jake, founded The Stand Brooklyn in 2010. Since then, they’ve brought us many lovely flavors of jams and fruit syrups, and now they’ve developed a lovely line of holiday inspired fruit garnishes. Best enjoyed with cheeses, French toast, over ice cream, or even stirred into a cocktail, these flavors are jam packed with fruit and spice.

Come in and let The Stand tickle your tastebuds, with their Spiced Cranberries, Apple Calvados Preserves, and Quince in Cardamom Syrup.

The cheese mongers will be pairing up some of our American made favorites. Expect fresh chevre, aged cheddar and maybe even a blue, each chosen to stand up to The Stand Brooklyn’s seasonal delights.

Purity Egg Nog

Well, it finally got cold! We knew it would happen, didn’t we? Everywhere you look newspapers are flying, trees are shedding their last leaves, and couples are bundled up against the biting wind that can only mean one thing – winter is finally on our doorstep. ‘Tis the season for many things (snow, fancy lights, gift-giving lobsters…), but nothing says “winter” like a frosty glass of eggnog, and we here at Provisions have the best stuff around! The Purity Ice Cream Company has been making sweet dairy treats in Ithaca, NY since 1936, and their crowning achievement is their eggnog – no artificial colors, added flavors, syrups, or anything else to muck up this seasonal delight. Purity also has some incredible eggnog recipes on their website (Almond Eggnog French Toast, anyone?), and you can stop by the Greene Grape Wine Store for some spirits to spike up your holiday. We’ve got the nog on our shelves until New Years, so do yourself a favor and grab a jug or two!

Phin & Phebes Brings Fresh Ice Cream To Brooklyn

Greene Grape Provisions is proud to feature Phin & Phebes, a brand new ice cream company sprouted from right here in Brooklyn. While they first honed their craft making their frozen fare as a hobby, they soon moved on to a feature spot at the Hester Street Fair in 2010, and were inspired to take their tasty treats to the streets. Check out their Coconut Key Lime, Ginger Cookie Snap, Vanilla Cinnamon and Vietnamese Iced Coffee flavors.

All their flavors start out in their home kitchen before making their way into formal production. Their super premium, 14{0886acb4f5be58b49bf4e022446f4168c3918f2aad77c1481cecb92c8f2156f3} butterfat ice cream is made with a low overrun, meaning there’s more delicious, creamy ice cream and less air. Their dairy comes from Quality Dairy Farms, a cooperative of eight family-run farms in Lewis and Jefferson Counties in New York not far from where the ice cream is made and hand-packed in small batches. When you see a pint of their ice cream in our case it’s very likely that the dairy in the ice cream was milked within the past 6-14 days – it doesn’t get much fresher than that! So take a chance on these new guys, we love their ice cream and expect to see them around for quite a while.

Mid-Autumn Treats

It seems like Mother Nature hasn’t quite made up her mind – even as we pass bare trees and crunch over leafy sidewalks, we’re still leaving our scarves at home on these warm days and mild evenings. Don’t let it fool you, though, because the holiday season is just around the bend, and we’ve got everything you need to fill your home with that seasonal magic right here at Provisions!
We just received our first delivery of the year from the Purity Ice Cream Company in beautiful Ithaca, NY. Their premium eggnog is the richest and most decadent we’ve come across, and it’s here in our dairy case all through New Years. We’ve also got new frozen items that are sure to leave you with visions of sugar plums – Adirondack’s classic Peppermint Stick ice cream will wash you with the chill of winter while Jeni’s warms you right back up with their Boozy Eggnog and Sweet Potato w/ Toasted Marshmallow ice creams flavors. And just wait to see the brand new Brooklyn-based ice cream company we’re debuting just before Thanksgiving – can you say Gingersnap Cookie?
We’re sure to be sampling bits of our awesome array of seasonal products throughout the coming weeks, and we have lots more new items coming in over the next month (Prickly Pear Salsa, anyone?), so keep your eyes peeled and share in the festivities with all of us at the Greene Grape!
