Agua Fresca Pack

 

Looking for additional Fruits? We’ve got them! Looking for a great way to make homemade juice? Look no further!

See your state Contribution Page for pack details!

 

Simple Fruit Water / Agua Fresca

Fruit water, or agua fresca, is so refreshing
and so easy!

Toss fruit into a pitcher or jar, steep for a bit, and enjoy; or throw the fresh fruit(s) in the blender, add water, sugar, and lime juice, pour over ice, and be transported to the tropics!

Mexican Pack

 

Ingredients to complement your south-of-the-border-themed dishes! We absolutely love making fresh salsas, fajitas (with or without meat!), and this Mexican hot sauce - we make something similar and add a teaspoon of oregano and double the garlic. My big kids use this sauce on everything!

Here’s some other fun recipes to try!

 

Corn, Jicama and Green Chile Salsa

 

Pico de Gallo

 

Chicken Stew with Salsa Verde

 

Cilantro 101

Roasting Veggie Pack

 

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! NOTE: Be careful when leaving roasted veggies out on a sheet pan to cool. It’s so easy to graze on it all afternoon, and before you know it, you’ll have eaten most of the pan and there won’t be enough for dinner! This is a serious issue in our house!

 

We love roasted veggies in our tacos and burritos. Remember to include leftovers as delicious cold salad toppers!

 

See your state’s Contribution Page for pack details!

 

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. Add a tsp or two of any other herbs you love – we love thyme and rosemary! – and unpeeled garlic cloves if you love roasted garlic as much as we do.

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!

ORGANIC

Gala Apples

Approx 72 count

Approx 38 Lb

 

These are dense, juicy, very sweet and low acid with a hint of citrus flavor. We love homemade applesauce!  Of course you could always do dried apples, regular apples sauce, fruit rolls, apple pie filling or apple butter! Plenty of options to make some healthy and delicious snacks and treats!

 

Here’s an easy-peasy Apple Butter Recipe to try!

 

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.

Cantaloupe

Approx 12 count

 

Such a sweet treat! My kids love cantaloupe. They love them sliced, cubed, blended, wrapped with prosciutto, and on fruit kabobs! Perfect on a fruit tray or in fruit salad. Or try out this Chilled Cantaloupe Soup

 

I love to warm up the house with baking. Here’s a melon twist on dessert bread!
