Honeycrisp Apples

Approx 36 Lb

 

Crisp, juicy, and sweet, these cause mayhem the moment they’re inside my door. Store in the refrigerator crisper drawer for a relatively long life; as with any produce, keep checking and pull those that start to look a little sad to maintain the quality of the rest.

Persimmons

Approx 38 Lb

 

These are the squat shaped persimmons! They are enjoyed while still firm and crisp. Enjoy raw, peeled and sliced in salads (lovely flavor and great color) or roasted! They have an almost pumpkin-like mild flavor.

One of the most festive fall and winter sites as a child was seeing bright orange persimmons on bare persimmon trees. They always looked like Christmas ornaments to me!

Here’s an awesome appetizer using prosciutoo – perfect for the upcoming holidays!

This recipe is very similar to my Gran’s. She served persimmons this way with a nice pork loin and with our Thanksgiving meal. Delicious!

Red Plums
Approx 28 Lb

 

Plums are a sweet treat just begging to go in a lunchbox! Grab these lovlies for lunches, snacks, and preserving!

Pomegranates
Approx 40 count

 

These delightful healthy treats are one of my favorite was to occupy my children.  Sit them outside with a pomegranate and a cup and they’ll be busy for an hour and get healthier by the moment!  I freeze the arils on a sheet pan and then throw in a freezer bag, ready to top salads, include in recipes, and enjoy out of hand – they freeze beautifully! – and of course there are faster ways to get them out of the fruit than picking!  Check out You Tube for some fun videos. The pomegranate has strong symbolic meaning throughout history in Greece and is present in many Greek dishes and sauces. And they’re gorgeous in a fall display!

Large Sweet Potatoes

Approx 40 lbs

 

Try them grilled, roasted, steamed, and baked. Prepare them cubed, mashed, pureed, made into fries, and baked into pies – and then freeze for later! They can be bottled, too! We love sweet potatoes, and I love having them prepped ahead for my holiday baking. Store as you would baking potatoes. Cube and roast (or roast and then slice) a few to top your salad – you won’t be disappointed!
