This week we bid February adieu and welcome March aboard!  In Austin, March means a bit of madness and a lot of lovely days.  It means getting into your garden to grow your own food and out into the community to engage with the bustle of spring-time activities.  It means welcoming a plethora of visitors to this fair city of ours.  And, of course, tons of live music, including here at in.gredients (find out more below).  Cheers!

Weekly Specials:

This week we’re putting our gardening goods on sale because, well, this weather has just been asking for it.  We want this to be the spring that you take your garden to the next level so you can share in the wonders of growing your own food.

 All week we’ll have seeds, transplants, and the amazing water-efficient olla on sale.  Plus, on Saturday we’ll have our first ever “gardener’s market” here at the store where you can fill up on compost and worm castings, and choose from an even larger selection of seedlings. Find out more in our events section below.

Promotions and News:

Coffee of the Month

Last month Casa Brasil brewed some delicious pour-over coffee on our porch with a visiting farmer from Brazil.  We were smitten with the results and thus decided to make that morning’s bean – Santa Ines – this month’s featured coffee.  Get it at a special low price just this month at in.gredients.  

Recipe of the Week

Erica’s “Bug Sauce”

In the buzz of last week’s in.sect launch event, Harman of World Ento turned to in.gredients for a simple teriyaki sauce to use in his cricket cooking demo. Erica, a veteran team member and the creative force behind our weekly salads (among other things), sprang into action and pulled together this impromptu “bug sauce.” To say the crowd was impressed and pleased with the results is an understatement.

Well, here’s the recipe, by popular demand!

This isn’t just for sautéing crickets – use it as a marinade or salad dressing, or wherever a recipe calls for a teriyaki-style sauce.  It’ll add a delightfully tangy sweet and sour flavor to just about anything.  


  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup tamari
  • 2 tsp ground giner
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp coriander
  • 1/2 tsp dried cilantro
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp chili flakes
  • 2 tsp turbinado sugar
  • 1/2 cup sesame oil


  1. Combine all the ingredients except the oil
  2. Drizzle the sesame oil into the mixture while whisking to emulsify.
  3. Enjoy! On crickets, a salad, chicken, or stir-fry!
