U.S. Wellness May 2006 Newsletter
May 7, 2006

Dear John,

We are honored to wish all of our mothers the best of Mother's Day greetings in the run up to their day of special celebration. Too many times we get caught up in life and fail to remember the sacrifice and passion our mother's have contributed to our well being.

In rural America, it is all great fun to cut a handful of phlox flowers, nourished in fence rows of farmsteads gone by, to be placed on the kitchen table with their pink and white colors and distinct aroma in full bloom.

Please note the selection of grass-fed meats, free range chicken, brown eggs, grass fed-dairy products, raw honey, certified humane pork, gourmet rabbit, free range bison and wild salmon for your mother's table in remembrance of Mother's Day.

Best regards - John, Nan & Lee Ann on behalf of the farm families of U.S. Wellness Meats

  • Polish Kielbasa All Beef Natural Sausage Now Available

    Meat, Soap and Gluten Free Meal Inventory Additions - Plus Chicken Changes
    Meat, Lamb, Pork, and Butter

    Returning customers will note a new list of pre-packaged chicken selections in 20 pound choices. Chicken feet have been added to one pre-package. Cut up chickens and 3 different sizes of whole chickens are now available. Please scroll the entire page to note all of the new selections. We apologize for the turmoil but the changes will streamline shipping for our free range producer and hopefully let him devote more time to raising chickens to increase supply.

    If you missed it earlier, U.S. Wellness has nitrate free bacon in stock with excellent reviews on flavor.

    After several requests, U.S. Wellness has added ground pork in one pound packages to the store. Pork burgers were made popular during the college football tailgates during the 1980's.

    Beef bacon tips have been replenished for those looking for discount bacon from irregular pieces left over from processing bacon.

    Beef liver, sirloin tip steaks and beef suet have been re-stocked.

    Four new varieties of all natural soaps have been added to the store for those whom are sensitive to coloring agents etc. Lavender, oatmeal - goat milk and honey, patchouli hemp and peppermint fresh silk soaps are waiting for the shower.

    U.S. Wellness has entered into is business relationship with Grandma Ferdons Gluten Free web store which offers a wonderful array of gluten free prepared foods from A to Z for those who are gluten sensitive. These are great folks from Wisconsin that are doing a first class job of preparing quality meals to deliver any where in the USA.

    Stay tuned as R&D is closing in on a successful pot roast and gravy with 5 key anti-oxidant herbs in a rice flour gravy. Pre-cooked prime rib with the same seasoning mix we used on the pre-cooked chuck roast will commence testing in May.

    What's Up Doc
    Dr. Al Sears

    U.S. Wellness Meats is pleased to feature Dr. Al Sears and his intriguing book The Doctor's Heart Cure in the May issue of What's Up Doc. Today we discuss how to eat fast food.

    The real problem with fast food is not that it contains too much fat -- it’s the wrong kind of fat, says Dr. Al Sears, author of The Doctor’s Heart Cure and director of the Center for Health and Wellness in south Florida.

    Sears recommends not eating fast food at all, since it is heavily laden with trans fats and carbohydrates. But if you must eat fast food, Sears offers these tips on how to improve the nutritional quality and heart healthfulness of your quick meal.

    • Choose the leanest red meat.
    • Choose fish or chicken that has been grilled instead of fried.
    • Avoid the salad dressings which are usually loaded with trans fats.
    • Throw the bun in the trash.
    • Don’t eat the fries or other foods cooked in vegetable oils.
    • Drink water with your meal instead of sodas or other drinks.
    A better plan for quick meals, Sears says, would be to “brown-bag” your lunch or make a quick trip to the local supermarket where you can select a healthier meal in about the same amount of time.

    To learn more about healthier eating, including how foods from U.S. Wellness Meats can improve your life, keep reading this newsletter and consider buying Dr. Sears’ book.

    $25 Discount For 40 Pound Combinations
    Meat, Lamb, Pork, and Butter

    Do not forget to take advantage of the 40 pound $25 discount by ordering 40 pound combinations of beef, lamb, pork and butter and raw cheese. This is our way of saying thank you for purchasing in volume. This can be any combination of products totaling 40 pounds and does not have to be specific to any category. Each 40 pound interval will yield the discount. For example, 80 pounds of product will yield a $50 discount and a 120 pound purchase will yield a $75 discount.

    Upcoming May 15th Handling Charge - Shipping Still Free

    U.S. Wellness will implement a $7.50 handling fee per order on May 15th, 2006 to offset rising costs we have been trying unsuccessfully to balance with cost cutting. Margins are very tight in the food business and we hope this will reset our rudder. Shipping charges are still free and built into the cost of the meat. Meat pricing will not change at this time. Large orders will be impacted less with a flat fee versus raising the cost of the meat across the board. We appreciate your loyalty as we have debated this decision with procrastination for several months.

    Anonymous Checkout Glitch

    Following 10 days of the new anonymous checkout we have curtailed the option due to tracking orders after fullfillment issues. Customers names are not saved, only invoice ID numbers, which creates havoc in dealing with order issues after the fact. We are hopefull that further updates will correct this issue. You will note our toll free number plainly visible if password issues surface.

    Recipe: Rabbit Paprikash

    Rabbit Paprikash

    By: Sandy De Oliveria - The Creative Cook on behalf of J.Laszlo

    1-cleaned and dressed 3 to 4 pound rabbit cut into pieces
    1/3 pound of bacon, cut into small pieces
    1 large onion finely chopped
    a bottle of white wine – chardonnay works fine
    1 pint of sour cream
    olive oil
    salt and pepper
    a good grade of Hungarian paprika flour

    1. Render the bacon in a Dutch oven or large 5 qt. pan until it is crispy. Put it on paper towels to drain. Reserve the bacon oil.
    2. Saute’ the finely chopped onion in the bacon oil until it is golden brown. Remove the onion from the Dutch oven and put into sieve. Drain the oil back into the Dutch oven.
    3. Make a dredging mixture of three parts flour to one part paprika. Add salt and pepper to taste.
    4. Dry the rabbit and dredge each piece in the flour/paprika mixture. Saute’ each piece of rabbit in the bacon oil in which you previously cooked the onion. Add some olive oil if there isn’t enough bacon oil left from cooking the onions.
    5. When all of the rabbit is browned, add the onion back to the pot. Add enough white wine to cover the rabbit and onions and simmer slowly until the meat is fork tender. Do not overcook the rabbit.
    6. Remove the rabbit from the pan and place onto serving platter. Add the sour cream to the wine mixture left in the Dutch oven and heat gently. Whisk mixture together. Do not over heat as it will break down the sour cream.
    7. When the sauce is well-fixed and quite warm, ladle it over the rabbit on the serving platter. Put any remaining sauce into a gravy boat and serve with the rabbit.

    This is good with broad noodles, garlic mashed potatoes, or rice and a green salad.

    Minimum Purchase Reminder

    Our new format enacted in April 2005 requires a $75 minimum purchase and a 7 pound minimum combined purchase of beef, lamb, pork, raw cheese, single piece poultry, and butter.

    The issue is the bulk chicken and ten pound cheese bundles originate from separate cold storage centers where those products are produced. It is not efficient to ship one package of beef as a stand alone item when the balance of the order originates 400 miles away.

    The shopping cart will keep track and remind you if you are under the 7 pound limit for a combination of beef, lamb, pork, raw cheese and butter purchases. Red font will appear under the shopping cart if you are under the minimum price or pound requirements
