So if GMOs concern you, please go with this option.

Mexican Pack

 

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

 

Hoping for Multi-Colored Bell Peppers, Red and Green Onion, Avocado, Tomato, Oregano, Cilantro and Garlic

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 Cauliflower, Russet Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes, Carrots, Beets, Parsley, and Red Onion

 

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!

Tropical Pack

 

A tropical-themed variety to inspire you and bring sunshine to the middle of winter! Serve up a tropical fruit salad or smoothie for Sunday brunch; make fun and refreshing flavored waters!

 

Hoping for Pineapple, Coconut, Kiwi, Bananas, Lime and Mint

 

Simple Fruit Water / Agua Fresca

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

Toss fruit into a pitcher or jar and 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! 

Fuji Apples 

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

-Cinnamon to taste (we do about a Tblsp)
-1/2 cup water

 

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.

Blackberries

Approx twelve 6 oz containers

 

Don’t leave these sitting! Delicious fresh, frozen, jammed, syruped (is that a word?), make a crisp or crumble, toss in a smoothie, smother ice cream or yogurt. Enjoy!

 

Carrots
Approx 50 lbs

 

Shredded, roasted, 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! Grab some celery and onions and chop up a bunch for mirepoix and throw in the freezer for easy starts to innumerable savory dishes!

Kiwi

Approx 39 count

 

These soft, sweet and tangy fruit are much loved at our homes! They are full of vitamins C, E, and K, folate, potassium, a lot of antioxidants and are a good source of fiber. A super healthy snack! We love them in hand, in fresh fruit salad, kiwi limeade, tropical salsa, and smoothies.

Pinto Beans

Approx 25 Lbs

 

Dried pinto beans – this is comfort food in our home! These are excellent prepared on the stove top (hours), slow cooker (more hours), and in the pressure cooker (one hour)! They make a killer side dish, a complete protein when paired with rice, and are a great salad topping. They are an absolute cinch to pressure can, too – add your own seasoning before or after bottling! I make at least one pot of beans each week to throw in tortillas or as a quick snack before we head out to sports activites. We like them whole, smashed, and ‘refried’ – I just use a stick blender to give a typical ‘refried’ texture. Cheating, I know, and so quick! Also, throw in some candied ginger during cooking to help with the ‘fluffy tummy’ (It works, promise, and does not change the flavor!)
