<![CDATA[Tailor Cut Produce - Uncle Jack\'s Blog]]>Wed, 24 Nov 2021 20:05:25 -0800Weebly<![CDATA[Supply pain issues]]>Mon, 22 Nov 2021 15:52:38 GMThttp://tailorcutproduce.com/blog/supply-pain-issuesThe restaurant down the street cannot seem to hire enough kitchen help, so the owner turns to their food service provider and places a much larger order than usual for cut fruit and vegetables. Likewise, the food service provider hands Tailor Cut Produce the order for his customer. This pattern repeats itself many times over and, although grateful for the increase in business and revenue, we experience some of the same issues as the aforementioned restaurant owner: a lack of employees to process the heightened volume. (Not to mention packaging materials sitting in a container off the coast of California that can't seem to get unloaded [not that it would matter, for there is a shortage of trucks, and truck drivers {yet no shortage of gas prices}].)

These are real issues that have been around for months and do not seem to be going away anytime soon. But it is not all gloom and doom. It can't be. Plusses include: for the most part we have gotten all the produce we need. We are grateful for the increased business (even if it is logistically challenging at times). Lastly, we are all in this together. Every cycle eventually cycles out. This one will, too... hopefully sooner rather than later. In the meantime, hang in there. And if you have any extra packaging materials taking up space, let me know.

Enjoy and happy and healthy holiday season.

<![CDATA[The fall harvest is here]]>Tue, 21 Sep 2021 15:02:14 GMThttp://tailorcutproduce.com/blog/the-fall-harvest-is-hereAh, Fall! Crisp, clear air! The pageantry of football! And once green leaves start turning brilliant hues of gold, orange, and purple! Speaking of a spectrum of colors (weren't we?)...

What better way to celebrate your upcoming events over the next few months but with a side dish (perhaps even the main attraction?) consisting of petite Cauliflower florets, diced Butternut Squash, cored and halved Brussel Sprouts, bias cut Carrots, and Red Pearl Onions?! Introducing Tailor Cut's very own "Jack Frost Winter Roasting Medley" (who wants to wait until winter for this delectable dish?)!

This vegetable blend was specifically designed in our test kitchen so that all components roast at a temperature that will produce an aromatic, flavorful, and evenly-cooked dish. Entertaining made simple, delicious and colorful; "leave" it to Tailor Cut Produce!

<![CDATA["The Blog"]]>Tue, 07 Sep 2021 13:36:48 GMThttp://tailorcutproduce.com/blog/the-blogSo… I’ve been tasked with writing “The Blog” (at first I thought they said The Blob [the cult classic Steve McQueen movie {I can’t hear as well as I used to AND I remember films from 1958- is it any wonder everyone calls me “Uncle”?}]). I am probably the least technological person you will ever meet; however, I’m going to give it my best shot. Stay tuned for what I hope will be some entertaining (and possibly educational) missives in the coming months. Thank you, in advance, for blobbing (er, blogging) along with me!
