Robert Schueller of Melissa's World Variety Produce in the AM830 KLAA Studio

Robert Schueller of Melissa’s Produce is our resident authority on all things fruits and vegetables. His knowledge is incredibly vast and Robert is also a serious home cook. We affectionately refer to Robert as “The Prince of Produce.” It fits…

Robert is our guest to highlight the Winter season’s best in produce for use in inspired Holiday cooking. Think, for starters, Butterscotch Pears, Green Dragon Apples, and Blackeyed Peas

It’s apple season. Along the way Robert will tell us about Organic Crimson Gold Apples. “These apples are grown near a National Forest in Cuyama Valley near Santa Barbara, California. Growing in this remote location provides ideal conditions: warm days and cool nights, producing an optimal sugar / acid balance and a firmness in the apples.” Recipes on the Melissa’s Website.

Show 244, October 14, 2017: Robert Schueller, Melissa’s Prince of Produce

Melissa's Robert Schueller at the SoCal Restaurant Show 5th AnniversaryRobert Schueller of Melissa’s is our resident authority on all things fruits and vegetables. He is the produce guru. If it’s legally grown (or imported) in the United States and Robert doesn’t know about it then it probably doesn’t exist!

This morning it’s the best of the season including Melissa’s Dutch Yellow Potatoes, Pearl Onions, Green Dragon Apples, Winter Crunch Grapes, Steamed Beets and Lentils. Also, Melissa’s new and expanding line of Clean Snax.

“Dutch Yellow Potatoes from Idaho are considered waxy as they remain dense and moist when cooked. The DYP also cooks a lot quicker than other kinds of potatoes. It is also the only potato variety that is not light sensitive, so it does not turn a greenish hue when exposed to light for an extended length of time.”

Melissa’s new CLEAN SNAX® comes in seven tasty mixes: Almond, Pumpkin Seed, Coconut, Quinoa, Cranberry, Carrot Cake, and Matcha.

Each convenient clamshell package contains 5-6 servings of delicious bite-sized squares that are packed with nutrient-dense ingredients like chia and flax seeds, nuts and more.

They are the perfect snack for kids and adults that satisfy both sweet and salty cravings in deliciously healthy nuggets of natural flavors.

All CLEAN SNAX® mixes are vegetarian, gluten free, low-fat, low-sodium and contain no artificial ingredients.
