Rustic hummus (September 10, 2013)

7 August, 2017: Our hummus was not originally designed to be eaten alone on platters. We developed it with a sandwich in mind. Less cumin, less garlic, creamy enough to spread easily on a sandwich. This year we decided our hummus needed a revisit. Chris and Ayr had just gotten back from NYC. They went to a hummus bar there,… Read More

This is what Kashering looks like

23 June, 2015: I’m not Jewish. I was raised going to a small New England brick congregationalist church a couple of towns over from where I grew up. But I’ve wanted Clover to be Kosher for a long time. I had a colleague at McKinsey who kept fairly strict Kosher, and I was shocked what a nightmare it was for her to… Read More

Clover + Harvard Medical School

18 June, 2015: We don’t talk about it too much, but one of the secret goals of Clover is to improve peoples’ health. We’ve had our fair share of stories of this happening, although nothing quite as crazy as Steve’s story. I was talking to Paul today and realized we had never posted about “our Jared.” Steve, a customer in Burlington,… Read More

Just What?

5 February, 2015: I saw this at the HUB about 2 weeks ago. That’s a giant shipment of Just Mayo. I hadn’t seen mention that we’d worked it into our menu so I emailed Chris asking when it was going to go live and he told me we’re a week into it already. We had a ton of debate about… Read More

Breakfast sandwich nutritionals

22 January, 2013: A few years back, both Ayr and I were convinced, we would NEVER be able to pull off eggs for our breakfasts. We didn’t like the taste of eggs at fast food restaurants. They are rubbery, and don’t have good flavor. There are a few (better diners, McDonald’s) that use griddles with fresh eggs and in the… Read More

Nutritionals are back

12 December, 2012: We haven’t been hiding nutritionals from you, we promise. We just didn’t have a clean way of reporting them. I spent a bunch of time updating the Recipe Template 2013 (that’s the one Ayr posted about) to include nutritional information. I fine-tuned the spreadsheet to make it easy for anyone to input information, and fixed a couple… Read More

Hibiscus tea nutritionals

12 April, 2011: Hibiscus is a flower that grows in tropical climates. It’s pretty tart and has an amazing deep red color when you steep it. There are several different ways this drink is traditionally prepared  by adding diffrent herbs, spices and/or sugar.  Our recipe: we double steep the hibiscus and add just enough brown sugar to balance some of… Read More

Iced Tea Nutritionals

10 April, 2011: This is another simple drink, but took us a little while to figure it out.  We use a really high quality loose leaf assam that we lightly sweeten with sugar.  To make it we steep assam for three minutes and strain it over sugar.  This is an important step because the hot tea dissolves the sugar.  If… Read More

Hot drink nutritionals

3 April, 2011: Finally…… More nutritional info!!!  I know I know…. I  have really been slacking on posting nutritional information and its 100% my fault.  We were off to a good start last year posting a few of our sandwiches; chickpea fritter, egg & eggplant, BBQ seitan and the soy BLT, but I got distracted opening up our first restaurant in… Read More
