Thursday, 11 December 2014 Holidays in the Capella Meat Department
Among the many specialty meats that we carry for the holidays, prime rib is a consistent favorite. Our meat department is always happy to talk with you about the best way to prepare these special meals so that you can be sure of a delicious result every time. Here's how our meat manager Barry ensures a perfect prime rib.
Perfect Prime Rib of Beef
One Oregon Country Natural Prime Rib Roast
1/3 cup olive oil
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
3 Tablespoons rosemary leaves
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon black pepper
1) Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place the roast in a shallow roasting pan and allow it to rest out of the refrigerator for 30 minutes to bring the meat to just about room temperature.
2) Combine olive oil, lemon juice, crushed rosemary, garlic and pepper. Rub the meat all over with this mixture, patting it into the meat, particularly on top.
3) Place the roast in the preheated oven for about 15 minutes or until the meat has begun to brown (the high heat will sear the roast to seal in the juices.). Reduce the heat to 350 degrees and continue to cook 12-15 minutes per pound, depending on the desired degree of doneness.
4) Remove the roast from the oven and allow the meat to rest for 10 minutes. Before carving, slice a piece of the exterior rosemary scented fat from the meat and rub it into the carving board to further season the roast.
5) For a gravy, thicken the pan juices with enough flour to make a paste. Cook over moderate heat for ten minutes, stirring constantly until the flour has browned and thinned slightly. Whisk in enough stock to give you a smooth sauce (about 2 cups for the average roast.). Continue to simmer for ten minutes, adjust the seasonings with salt, pepper, rosemary, and or parsley.
Thursday, 4 December 2014 Annual Neighbors in Need Food Drive
We are kicking off our fourth annual Neighbors in Need Food Drive! In 2011 one of our regular customers approached us with a great idea that she had seen in another state.

Thursday, 31 July 2014 YES ON 92
We at Capella Market are passionately in favor of the passage of ballot measure 92.
- The natural foods industry was built on the desire to eat and serve our families the healthiest, most nourishing food possible.
- In order to do this, we must know what is in the foods that we are consuming. Sixty four other countries, including Japan and the countries of the European Union already require the labelling of all genetically modified foods.
- GMO crops are often engineered to withstand more pesticide use, which is damaging to the environment, including to bees, water, soil and nearby non GMO crops.
- By labelling locally produced foods, we can increase the ability for foods manufactured in Oregon to be welcome in other markets across the globe.
- By bringing the state of Oregon up to the standard already in practice in other parts of the world, we are renewing our commitment to healthful eating and a healthy planet.
For more information about ballot measure 92 and genetically modified foods, please go to oregonrighttoknow.org
