Grill Pack

 

Add extra produce to your basket! All of these items are awesome plain, marinated, or sauced on the grill!

 

See your state Contribution Page for pack details!

Italian Pack

 

Add extra produce to your basket! A variety of veggies to stretch your basket and round out your Italian-themed dishes!

Think Tagliatelle with Romanesco (can sub burata with fresh mozzarella, anchovies with worchestershire sauce or capers), Garlicky Tuscan Kale, and of course a light tomato sauce or a bruschetta sauce! Throw in some lightly toasted pinenuts for extra texture and a flavor punch!
 

We enjoy a side of pasta tossed with olive oil, chopped tomatoes and onion, fresh herbs and whatever vegetables I have on hand -  ribboned kale, broccolini, squash, cauliflower – with supper. The kids love the pasta, I love the veggies they’re getting with it.

Salad Pack

 

We love our Salad Packs! Add extra produce to your basket and enjoy fresh and delicious salads this week!

 

See your state Contribution Page for pack details!

Fresh Basil

Approx 1 Lb

 

Fresh basil means homemade pesto in this house! 

Combine with the tomato  add-on for caprese salad or homemade tomato sauce, enjoy with eggs and bruchetta, too! Don’t forget pizza! Pesto instead of red sauce makes for a killer pizza base!

This is a much-used pesto recipe here. We omit the cheese for our dairy-free family members, and our dairy eaters prefer pecorino to parm to top pesto.

Try Garlic Pesto Chicken!

Blueberries

Approx eight 18 oz containers

 

Don’t leave these sitting! No matter how you serve or preserve them, these little gems are delicious! They dehydrate well, jam up nicely, can star in an amazing pie, top yogurt and ice cream, and are great to snack on! We love to add them to pancakes, muffins, and scones.

Broccoli
Approx 20 Lb

 

Perfect finger-food snacks for lunch! Great to par boil and freeze! Make last-minute dinners easy. I soak in salt water, cut into consistent size, then rinse well. Blanche, plunge immediately into ice water to cool, and freeze in freezer bags. If you have an electric pressure cooker, prep the same way, put in steamer basket, add 1 cup water, and set on high/manual for 0 (zero!) minutes and carefully and immediately vent and remove from cooker. Perfect, hands-free steamed broccoli! We love simply steamed broccoli!

 

A delicious way to warm up your kitchen is Pan-Roasted Broccoli with Romano!

Papaya

Approx 12 count

 

Serve sliced with a squeeze of lime! 

This delicious tropical fruit is ripe when mostly yellow and soft to the touch. The flesh is delicately scented, sweet and juicy. The seeds are edible – crunchy and peppery. Refrigerate when ripe and enjoy within a couple of days!

 

White Peaches

Approx 25 Lb

 

Peaches freeze and bottle beautifully. We love them just fresh or alongside a fun snack platter: sheep’s cheese, figs, almonds, cherries, apricots, berries, and sweet citrus (with the first three is my absolute favorite!). You can grill or poach them, too – and, of course, make jam or jelly, syrup, compote. Infuse summertime drinks, add to smoothies, popsicles, sorbets, cobblers, top desserts, ice cream, yogurt, and granola. Wonderful!

Pineapple
Approx 5 count

 

Delicious sliced fresh and in smoothies, add to jams, and bottle chunks! Freezes beautifully for future smoothies or later processing. We make smoothie kits with our favorite fruit and veggie combos for dump, blend, and run mornings! Juice some up with oranges or mango for a super special and delicious 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.

I love Grilled Pineapple year-round! A warm, sweet, and healthy meal side or dessert.

Have you tried Canning Pineapple Chunks? No junk in here!

 

Organic Maple Syrup

Approx Half Gallon

This maple syrup is a delicious addition to your morning meals! We love the darker, richer, more intense flavor of this highly unprocessed, Grade B maple syrup for tabletop use, for cooking/baking, and sweetening all of the things!
