New Link Lab Sausages & Marx Pantry Goodies!

New to Marx Foods:
Link Lab Sausages!
Link Lab Sausages

We love Link Lab Sausages at Marx Foods.  They’re handmade, chef-quality sausages produced by a Seattle company in small batches from local, responsibly-raised meats.  The level of quality is top notch, and you can tell due to their more tender texture, the pronounced “snap” of natural casings, and superior flavor.

Watch our behind-the-scenes producer spotlight video (below) to learn more about them, and check out the varieties to pick out your new favorite!

Venison Cheeks!

Sure, it’s not braising season right now, but our new venison cheeks will be here for you later on.  They’re packed with delicious venison flavor and become meltingly-tender when slow braised in a flavorful sauce.  Something to look forward to!

First the Sweet…
Marsala Pop Popcorns

We now carry popcorn. We thought we’d never say that, ever…but Marsala Pop changed our minds.

Their popular Marsala Chai Popcorn probably gets gobbled by staff the most, but their two limited-release flavors: Saffron & Rose Popcorn (a lovechild of American kettle corn & Indian desserts) and Spicy Pineapple & Cardamom Popcorn set this food writer’s heart aflutter.  They challenge (and fascinate) the palate in remarkable ways.

Shiro Plum & Mint Jam

The label says it all, but it doesn’t do the flavor of this plum & mint jam justice.  The balance between the tangy, fruity, sweet plum & herby, fresh spearmint is spot on, and that makes all the difference.  Jam of this quality isn’t just for toast.  Try it with fine cheeses, in sauces, on desserts or stirred into yogurt, or shake/stir some into your next vinaigrette.

Quince Cutting Preserves

Quince Cutting Preserves

Membrillo (Spanish quince paste) is a must-have for fancy cheese plates and some tapas and desserts.  The tawny, fruity, deep, honeyed flavor of stewed quince does amazing things to the rest of the food on the plate.  These quince cutting preserves are in the same style, but a tad softer with a flavor that’s richer & better balanced.  They’re handmade in small batches on Orcas Island off the coast of Washington.

Pasteli Sesame Bar

Sesame Bar

Snack like ancient Greek warriors (seriously, this stuff was mentioned in The Illiad) with Greek pasteli bars.  These delightful treats have only two ingredients: sesame seeds & Greek honey.  They’re super-duper tasty and were used as energy bars by Greek athletes & soldiers.

Then the Savory…

Red Boat Chef’s Cuvee Fish Sauce

Cuvee Fish Sauce

Red Boat is the chef’s favorite fish sauce brand, offering superb flavor for the price.  Their chef’s cuvee fish sauce is even more special.  After the sauce comes out of Red Boat’s traditional cask-fermenting process, it gets aged again in bourbon barrels, making its flavor incredibly smooth.  It’s amazing stuff.

Full Size Haute Sauces

We’ve offered Haute Sauce’s delightfully gift-able hot sauce sampler for a long time, but have now added full size bottles of the same flavors.
