Fresh Oysters

Fresh oysters: people either love ‘em or hate ‘em. I am one of the lovers. A fresh shucked oyster with a little hot sauce and lemon simply slurped down always gets my mojo going.

All week beginning March 18 at Jensen’s Palm Desert, Palm Springs and Blue Jay we will be shucking impeccably fresh Morro Bay Grassy Bar Oysters, while supplies last. They will be available by the 1/2 dozen for a special price. You won’t find this kind of freshness at other stores, you’ll only find it at Jensen’s. Come on out and get your mojo going with fresh oysters!


We’re Brining Our Corned Beef

There isn’t a more traditional Irish food than corned beef. Ok, Guinness Stout and Jameson Whiskey are, but they are technically not a food. As far as I am concerned the only real way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day is with corned beef done the traditional way. Jensen’s is one of the few stores left that actually corns our own beef. It is definitely not like the crap you get at the chain stores. We start with USDA Choice Angus Beef Brisket and Rounds. We then mix our special brine in 50 gallon barrels using pickling spices, garlic, bay leaves and kosher salt. In goes the beef and it “corns” for three weeks. All that’s left is for you to cook it, and we have you covered there with easy instructions.

Or if you want it cooked, we will have it ready in our deli.

Everyone’s Irish on March 17, and we are happy to be part of your St. Patrick’s tradition.


25 Years of Diestel Turkeys

We started carrying Diestel Turkeys in 1989. These turkeys are broad–breasted and well marbleized, just like a good steak. During my 30 years in the meat business, I’ve never seen another turkey come close to the quality & product consistency that Diestel brings. We’ve had numerous turkey suppliers try to sell us their free-range turkeys, some less expensive and some more, but none are near the quality of Diestel’s birds.

A few years ago, I had the opportunity to visit the Diestel Ranch. I was very impressed with the amount of room these turkeys have to roam and the humane growing conditions these birds enjoy.

In 2002, we began to sell our Oven-Ready Diestel Turkeys. And since then, they have become our most popular turkey. As the name implies, this turkey is ready to cook right from the fridge. That’s because each Oven-Ready Diestel Turkey is washed, seasoned and tied, comes pre-packed inside a cooking bag, with a foil tray and instructions. Leaving you more time to entertain, and less time in the kitchen. And best of all, in just 3 1/2 hours, you can have a fresh cooked, moist turkey on your dinner table.

We guarantee you will enjoy our Oven-Ready Diestel Turkey or your money back! Order yours today >
