Hoping for Hoping for Oranges, Lemons, Tangerines, Grapefruit and Limes

Hostess Pack

 

This hostess Pack is fabulous if you are the chosen one pulling it all together for your frineds or family this Christmas, or if you want all the holiday fixings at home even though you are doing the official dinner elsewhere!  

Here are some of my fav simple holidays ideas for this pack.

Hoping for Rainbow Carrots, Russet Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes, Pineapple, Green Beans, Cuties and Green Apples

Russet Potatoes – Sour Cream Mashed over here.

 
Rainbow Carrots – Roast them to keep the color! A perfect addition to a fresh veggie platter.

Sweet Potatoes – Baked, then peeled and cut into rounds and topped with a drizzle of melted butter and some spiced pecans.  This is great with a bit of brown sugar too, but we are staying away from refined sugar so not that way this year for us.

Pineapple – for a fresh fruit platter or pineapple upside down cake! We love to blend with orange juice and add some sparkling water for a special morning drink!

 
Green Beans – we go simple! For the kids, panfried and al dente with chopped garlic, red pepper flake, and a splash of soy sauce or coconut aminos. For the husband, panfried and tender with onions, butter, parsley, lemon, and slivered almonds.

Cutie Tangerines – the perfect traveling snack, full of Vitamin C!

Granny Smith Apples – for a perfect Pie.  I have taken to putting my peeled and sliced apples in a ziplock and I shake them with the Flour, Sugar and Spices so that they are perfectly covered before putting into the crust!  Best Pie ever.  My daughter loves to plan and implement a fancy top crust design!

Roasting Veggie Pack

 

This is one of our favorite packs right now! Packed with root veggies galore, there’s a ton of nutritional variety and it is so pretty! When we get this pack we chop everything right away and put it in ziplock bags, and then each time we would like roasted veggies, we grab some and follow the directions below!

 

Hoping for Red Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes, Russet Potatoes, Carrots, Beets, Turnips and Red Onions

 

Simple Roasted Veggies
Peel and Cube in 1″ pieces any/all the items from your pack!
Put them in a ziplock bag and drizzle in enough Olive Oil to cover, then I add salt and pepper to taste, and about a tbsp of onion powder. Shake and shake and shake, then dump onto a pan. Put in over at 375. Stirring every 15 minutes if it is not single layer and cook until fork soft. About 45 min to 1 hour!
Feeling adventurous?
Mix up the seasonings and include about a tsp of cumin. After roasting, finish with a splace of red wine or balsamic vinegar!

Fuji Apples 

Approx 113 count

Approx 38 Lbs

 

Fuji apples are crisp, sweet and juicy and are an all around solid choice as an apple. I love them in all the following ways:

 

- Fresh eating apple
- Apple Sauce
- Fruit Rolls
- Apple Pie
- Apple Crisp

 

Fresh Sugar-Free Applesauce is easy and delicious! In a stovetop or electric pressure cooker, put in:

-Apples (at least 10, up to enough to fill your pot to the Max line
-1/2 cup water
-Optional: Cinnamon to taste (we do about a Tblsp)
-Optional: Vanilla (we do about a tsp)

 

Peel and core your apples, fill pot to Max line (I’ve thrown in a couple of pears, too), pressure for 10 minutes, release the pressure if you’re in a hurry, natural release if you’re not, and blend – I like my stick/immersion blender as it easily allows me to keep some chunkiness. Adjust seasoning as desired – more cinnamon, splash of vanilla, some sweet spice blend, whatever. Throw in your refrigerator and enjoy all week!

Any kind or mix of apples will do, though using only Granny Smiths will be tart. I tend to do a max of four Granny Smith per full pot of apples for sauce.

Rainbow Carrots

Approx 25 Lbs

 

Shredded, steamed, peeled and dipped, juiced, pressure canned, pickled, par boiled and frozen, these carrots are multi-use! Roast them for a naturally sweet treat. My kids cheer when they see that big bag – it means apple/carrot juice is on the menu for the week! Checkout our blog posts on carrots!

Red Seedless Grapes

Approx 19 Lbs

If you ask my kids, grapes are nature’s candy! Great for eating fresh, my kids also love to eat them frozen and use them as ice cubes in their drinks – because they don’t dilute and they’re fun to eat! Add to fruit salad and green salad, the kids’ holiday punch, or sangria!

Limes

Approx 17 two Lb bags

 

Zest and freeze; juice and freeze! We use limes in all kinds of things, including smoothies, infused water, drinks, recipes, and marinades. Try out this one the next time you make fajitas! Into a container: juice of one lime (or three! I love lime!), about a cup of chopped cilantro, four cloves of chopped garlic, a chopped jalapeno, 3-4 tablespoons olive oil, a teaspoon each salt and pepper. If I’m feeling fancy, I process in food processor or blender. If I’m feeling lazy, I leave chunkier and just chop more finely. Great on meat, seafood, and veggies! Also, think Key Lime Pie! My 10yo loves to make fresh limeade any time we have 10 or more limes – fresh and delicious!

Pineapple
Approx 7 count

 

Delicious fresh and in smoothies, add to jams, and bottle chunks! Freezes beautifully for smoothies or later processing. Juice some up with oranges or mango for a super special anddelicious breakfast beverage. Have you tried dehydrated pineapple? So easy and delicious! A perfect summer-y, sweet, and healthy snack at home or on the go.

We enjoyed a lovely punch at Thanksgiving with fresh pineapple juice and floating pineapple rings. Pretty and delicious!

 

My kids love Virgin Pina Coladas as a special treat, and they’re pros at making them – even my 7yo! Into the blender goes chunks of pineapple, coconut milk or coconut creme depending on what we have, ice, and just a squeeze of lime. No sugar or dairy required!

Brussels Sprouts
Approx 12 Lb

 

So excited about this long time favorite of mine showing up as a featured item! Whether you serve them boiled, or steamed or roasted with onions and bacon like yours truly these are a for sure pleaser!

Carnival Squash
Approx 20 count

 

This gorgeous squash is a cross between acorn squash and sweet dumpling squash. Flavor is similar to a butternut squash, sweet and nutty, with a buttery finish. A great option to keep you in squash over winter break!

Golden Nugget Squash
Approx 20 count

 

Also known as an Oriental Pumpkin, this bright orange squash has a starchy texture and sweet flavor. Can be used as a substitution for sweet potato. A great option to keep you in squash over winter break!

Red Kuri Squash
Approx 20 count

 

Also known as an orange Hokkaido pumpkin, this squash is smooth fleshed and has a rich, sweet flavor similar to cooked chestnuts. A great option to keep you in squash over winter break!
