So my own personal favorite Los Bagels story has to do with the fact that Los Bagels is my bagel place. I’ve lived in Humboldt County for over 30 years and if I’m going to eat a bagel, that’s where I’m going. A couple of years ago I was down in the Bay Area at Noah’s Bagels, stood in line, got to the register and asked for a Jalapeno Bagel with Cream Cheese and Guacamole. Well…WHO KNEW?! They don’t serve that fabulous item, they looked at me like I’d dropped in from another planet — well, I did! Planet Humboldt — beam me up Scotty!
The corn crib in Pepperwood is a great place to get organic corn, and other vegetables! And you don’t have to drive down there, Ginger and family can be found at various Farmers Markets throughout the county. She talked me into getting a case of tomatoes when I already had seven cases waiting for me at the CR Farmers Market — and I roasted them in a 300 degree oven for several hours, which is where you will find the crossroads of savory and sweet in a carmelized slow roasted early girl tomato. YUM!
