I shop the TJ in Santa Fe and that store has a difficult time keeping them in stock, and they keep expanding the display. Tha last time I was there, there were none to be found

I hate it when something I really like is never in stock. I discovered if you special order it, you get yours before it hits the shelves.

The only TJ I have ever see is in Newton. Where is yours located?

Addie, there are 11 TJs in eastern MA and one in Nashua, just over the border.

Andy, they're up to 14 plus one on the way in Hingham. Plus Nashua.

We were meeting my SIL and her hubby for Thanksgiving 2005, sharing a Hilton Head timeshare unit. Neither of us wanted to make a big meal, so we stopped at the southernmost TJs just south of Washington DC. Half-dozen years later they've made it all the way to FL!

If I got a free coffee I liked, I would stop off, too!

My newest favorite TJ is their cryo-vac rib eye steaks, ready to pop into my Sous Vide for effortless almost perfect steaks. (Nobody will ever agree on what constitutes a perfect steak, so it's impossible for any cooking technique to result in a perfect steak for all.)

I prolly never mentioned this before, but I love crystallized ginger as an appetizer before dinner, along with my cheese and nuts and pretzels etc... TJ's quit selling this for 1-2 years although has recently started selling the product again.

I learned how to make my own crystallized ginger (and it's a lot cheaper too!). Somebody remind me if you want me to post the recipe (or Google is your friend). The essence: simmer ginger in a more than 50/50 mixture of sugar:water for a few hours, then dry it. In fact that's the recipe so no need for me to post it, been there done that...

TJ's Colombian coffee has been my house standard for many years. I occasionally mix it up with various beans from WFM.

It's convenient when they come cryo-vac'ed like that. It's great for those who don't own vacuum sealers.
I've been thinking about trying this myself with a stove top DIY sous vide setup.
Do you have a SV cooker?
