Chock-full of Vitamin C, this is a variety of citrus to delight your tastebuds! We love to make up mini-citruspacks as gifts for teachers, coaches, and neighbors. Or fill your home with amazing scents by slicing and putting in water on your cooktop any combination of: citrus, cinnamon, clove, vanilla, pine needles, and cranberries.

We love soup weather! You can use this as the basis for stew as well. The possibilities are endless!

 

Imagine Zuppa Toscana (substitute coconut milk to make it dairy-free, add canneloni or navy beans to make it vegetarian); chicken or beef stew, hearty vegetable soup, French onion soup, tomato soup, and stock!

TriColor (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/carrotjuice is on the menu for the week! Checkout our blog posts on carrots!
 

Roasted Rainbow Carrots

About Rainbow Carrots

 

Persian Cucumbers

Approx 22 Lbs

 

These are short and a great size to pickle! My kids inhale them fresh – washed and unpeeled! Some of our favorite ways to eat cucumber are just sliced and dipped in hummus, eggplant dip, dressing, or the like; creamed with fresh herbs; tossed with red onion, tomato, and vinegar; sliced and thrown on top of a green salad; and made into yogurt salad (tzatziki). My childhood favorite? Peeled, sliced, and left overnight in pickling juice (from the dill pickle jar once the pickles are gone) and eaten in front of Saturday morning cartoons!

 

Kale

Approx 24 bunches

 

Make kale chips (a family favorite!); braised kalekale salad; juice it or put it in smoothies, egg scrambles, pasta(!), and soups and stews; and on pizza! This superfood veggie is so versatile and so good for you. My current daily breakfast: fresh kale, sweet potato (cubed, roasted, and frozen), chopped garlic, olive oil in a pan; top with a fried egg, homemade sriracha, and crumbled bacon or sausage if there’s any languishing in the fridge! It is an amazing start to my day!

Too much kale to use in a week? Solution: FREEZE it! Short term storage, up to about 6 weeks: 
For smoothies, wash and throw leaves in a freezer back with your “smoothie kit” loves. Pull out and throw in the blender with your liquid of choice and enjoy.
For adding to cooked dishes, soups, stews, etc., chop and freeze or blend with a little water and freeze in ice cube trays for perfect portions.

 

Long term storage, up to a year:
Blanche and freeze! For just leaves, 2 to 2-1/2 minutes. For stems, about 3 minutes. Then into ice water to cool. Hand dry (I roll in a clean and lint-free towel), and quick-freeze on a cookie sheet before moving into freezer bags. Do whole leaves or chopped, single layers or kale clumps, your choice! Add amount desired to your recipes.

 

Sausage, Kale, and White Bean Pasta is a hearty, delicious, easy supper.

Bartlett Pears

Approx 80 ct

Approx 40 Lb

Pears fresh, pears bottled, pear tart, pear crisp, pear pie, pear cake, pear salad, pear relish, roasted pears, poached pears! Eat out of hand, killer spiced pear or apple-pear butter for brunch, apple-pear sauce for the lunchbox! These are beautiful bottled, and luscious baked en galette. Swoon!

 

If you don’t eat them quickly enough, they’re marvelous in smoothies, pear butter, and Pear Sauce

 

A nice and EASY mash-up for the holidays is Pear-Apple Crumble!
