Traditional Diets Class Series

Jessica Prentice’s Introduction to Traditional Diets (formerly an 8-week Girl with Grain series) has been condensed and refined to be presented in 3 two-hour sessions on Thursday evenings starting on March 5th. This is a great overview for people who are new to a nutrient-dense approach to food, but will also be full of new perspectives for those who have been working with these principles for a while. The three classes combined will cover all Eleven Characteristics of Traditional Diets in some depth.

 

Part 1: The Nourished Community: An Introduction to the Work of Weston A. Price; Dairy Products in Traditional Diets,

Thursday, March 5th, 5:30pm-7:30pm

 

Part 2: The Bubbling Crock: Fermented Foods and Beverages; Grains in Traditional Diets, Thursday, March 12th, 5:30pm-7:30pm

 

Part 3: Lavish Love and The Beauty of Broth: Fats; Bones and Braises in Traditional Diets, Thursday, March 19th, 5:30pm-7:30pm

 

Tickets: Each class is $15 and includes the Broth Bar. You may purchase tickets at the door or pre-pay online on the Education Menu, listed under the Current Menu tab.

 

Broth Bar: Please enjoy our broth and condiment bar prior to the speaker. Doors will open 20 minutes prior to the event.

All Broths now in Freezer-Safe jars!

Chicken Broth Now in Freezer-Safe Jar!

 

Straight-sided 24 ounce jars are freezer safe if only filled to the 20 ounce line

We are very excited that all of our bone broths will now be in a jar that can be frozen for later use! When we started Three Stone Hearth, the 24 ounce freezer-safe jar was not available, and we jarred our broth in quarts. Unfortunately, the shoulder on the quart jar makes it liable to crack when placed in the freezer. This has caused much lamenting on the part of our customers who lost broth by trying to freeze it.

Filling the straight-sided 24 ounce jar to the freezer safe line (about 20 ounces of broth) allows the liquid to expand upwards when it freezes, preventing breakages. We will still be selling our broth fresh and unfrozen, but this jar allows people to freeze it if they choose to.

A few notes on pricing: We will be charging $9.50 for 20 ounces of Pastured Chicken Bone Broth to keep the per-ounce price close to what we have been charging for the quarts jars, but also accounting for the dramatic rise in pastured chicken prices.

Coming to terms with the real cost of real food can be challenging. Three Stone Hearth continues to source the highest quality ingredients, to support local producers who provide them, and to ensure the sustainability of our business.

Unfortunately, our Pastured Beef Bone Broth and Pastured Pork Trotter Bone Broth have both been underpriced, and at the current cost we are losing money on each jar we sell. Last year, the national cattle wholesale price went up 30%, and in California, the drought put even more pressure on grassfed beef production. Beef bones have gone up in price dramatically. We are raising the price on the Beef and Pork Broths to $13.00 per jar.
