At the Co-op, we’re all about making baking fun, easy and delicious. Sourcing locally is always our first goal, and our knowledgeable staff is always ready to answer any questions you may have or offer up tasty suggestions. Here are a couple of ideas to get you baking:
Bakers love bulk: In the Co-op’s Bulk department, you can always get as little or as much of something as you need. This means you’ll always have fresher ingredients, and that you are free to experiment to your heart’s content. Only need one cinnamon stick? Curious to try star anise in your cookie recipe? In Bulk, you can find new favorites without wasting money.
A “grate” way to soften butter: Ever get ready to bake some buttery baked goods only to discover that all you have are rock hard sticks of butter from the fridge? Soften butter quickly by grating it! Use your largest grater to grate the butter directly into a mixing bowl. Let it sit a few minutes, then it will be ready and it’s ready to cream with sugar or use with other ingredients. This works well for recipes that call for softened, but not melted, butter.
