• 5 Reasons to Start Eating Chocolate-Covered Bugs

    For many centuries, farmers were united against one merciless enemy: the insect. Tiny beasts that, when left unchecked, could completely undermine seasons of hard farm work and send families into starvation. It’s no wonder, then, why many modern-day Americans are opposed to eating insects. As the mortal enemy of our agrarian ancestors, insects instill in us an abject fear and disgust that we simply have not been able to shake. However, Americans and Europeans are in the minority when compared to the rest of the world.

  • Discoveries at the Jungle: Maple

    What can we say about maple syrup? Without it, pancakes would be inedible, children’s’ hands wouldn’t be mysteriously sticky, and the world would be a much less interesting place. We wouldn’t have those delightfully molded maple candies, bacon would be slightly less magnificent, and baked bean brands around the nation would suffer.

  • Discoveries at the Jungle Brasil: Picanha, the Best Steak in the World

    What is picanha?

    Picanha is a cut of steak that comes from the end of a steer, just above the tail. In the United States, this cut is sometimes called a top sirloin or a rump cut. Picanha is characterized by a thick cap of fat that covers the top of the steak. This adds complexity and flavor to the finished product. In most cases, the fat is at least ½-inch thick, but it’s often as thick as 4 inches.

  • Discoveries at the Jungle: Mustard

    Mustard. The quintessential American condiment. We use it on hot dogs at the ballpark, drizzle it over hamburgers in our backyard cookouts, and most of us keep a squeeze bottle in the fridge for sticky situations, like when the delivery guy forgets to include our favorite sauce. Mustard is the second most-used spice in the United States, trailing just behind peppercorn, and it’s clear that America loves mustard. At Jungle Jim’s International Market, we share that love.
