Bulk Item of the month: Couscous PDF Print E-mail

by Chris Ellis, Staff Nutritionist
June 2017

Couscous is an interesting grain. Its name sounds very exotic and one might expect it to be quite unusual but it is most often derived from wheat, not so uncommon. It is believed that the Berbers, an ethnic group indigenous to North Africa, were responsible for developing couscous, but some uncertainty remains about this fact. The name may have originated from the Berber word seksu, which means ‘well rolled or ‘rounded.” Couscous (“koos koos”) has various names around the world but this is the word for it in the U.S. and the U.K. In North Africa, it is written and pronounced totally differently; a few examples are kesksu or seksu or kosksi. There is evidence that it was prepared as early as 238 to 149 BC, since the remains of couscous pots have been found in the tombs of prominent leaders from that time. Cooking pots used for couscous have also been discovered in North Africa dating back to the 9th century.

Board of Directors Report: Co-op Sustainability PDF Print E-mail

by Wesley Pittman
May 2017

Each month this newsletter features a local enterprise: a dairy, a bakery, a farm. We are fortunate to live where the food we eat is produced with great care, and where our member-owned Co-op exists to provide a range of such items to the community. The Brattleboro Food Co-op is dedicated to the support of a sustainable local economy. Situated in a wider world which has little respect for local economies, the cooperative business model we practice affirms the value of the local and the sustainable: how we buy and sell and how we treat one another are local issues with global reach.
