Show 503, December 10, 2022: Robert Schueller of Melissa’s Produce – Best of the Season, Part One

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 5: November 10, 2012: Melissa’s Produce Moment with Produce Guru Robert Schueller and Corporate Chef Ida Rodriguez

We’re talking Korean Pears, Meyer Lemons and Organic Crimson Gold Apples (grown in California.) The Korean Pears are incredibly juicy and delicious, are the size of a large apple, and crunch. Quite a treat…

Look for Chef Ida’s easy to prepare recipes for Asian Pear Slaw, Asian Pear Tart, and the Meyer Lemon Tart on the Melissa’s website.
