Assorted Citrus Pack

 

A variety of citrus to delight your tastebuds! We love to make up mini-citrus packs 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.

 

Hoping for Cuties, Navel Oranges, Lemons and Texas Grapefruit

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 Bean, Red Leaf Lettuce, 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!
 
Red Leaf Lettuce – for a pretty and colorful green salad!

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, Russet and Sweet 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!

Rainbow Carrots

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!

Pears fresh, pears bottled, pear tart, pear crisp, pear pie, pear cake, pear salad, pear relish, pearbutter, roasted pears, poached pears! The sky is the limit!

Pineapple

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!
