Salad Pack

 

One of our all-time favorite packs! We serve a salad nearly every night; its such an easy way to get veggie goodness into our families! We love raw ingredients, of course. We also love adding roasted veggies or fruits, chopped or slivered nuts, and homemade dressings with herbs, vinegar or lemon juice, and a healthy oil. We also love to pack lunchtime lettuce wraps with lettuce and ingredients of all types!

 

Hoping for Green Leaf Lettuce, Red Onions, Strawberries, English Cucumber and Yellow Bell Pepper

Organic Granny Smith Apples 

Approx 24 Lbs

 

These are firm and juicy with thick skin and tart, sweet, slightly acidic flavor. This is a great time to stock up and process snacks for the summer! Dried apples, apples sauce, fruit rolls, apple pie filling (for pies or crisps!), apple butter! Plenty of options to make some healthy and delicious snacks and treats!

Ground Cumin

Approx 5 Lb

 

Cumin, my nemesis! Why? Because I run out of it All Of The Time! After garlic and onion powders, this is the most-used spice in my kitchen. I make all of my own spice mixes and rubs (no fillers nor MSG for us), and cumin is a major player in any mix, rub, and marinade destined for Mexican dishes and meats headed for the barbeque and smoker. Cumin is in every salsa and taco sauce, chicken salad, meat loaf, kebabs, pinto and black beans, lentils, and chicken soups that I make. I make up a batch of taco seasoning at least once a month. I love knowing exactly what is -and isn’t- in my family’s food!

Roma Tomatoes

Approx 25 Lbs

 

Salsa, Tomato Sauce, Diced Tomatoes, Roasted Tomatoes, they all start with Romas! These tomatoes will be the basis for so many amazing meals for your family.

Tomato sauce is so easy! If you want a place to start, this is a very nice sauce recipe: http://www.geniuskitchen.com/recipe/fresh-tomato-spaghetti-sauce-10837

 

This is a simple fresh salsa recipe that adds a punch with some dry spices – include or leave

Pinto Beans

Approx 25 Lbs

Dry

 

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!) For a stovetop or electric pressure cooker: for two cups of dry beans, sorted and rinsed, I add 6 cups water, a couple of pieces of chopped up candied ginger, couple Tbsp of homemade Mexican seasoning, about a tsp cumin, and several Tbsp garlic (fresh, chopped in water, dehydrated, or powder – doesn’t matter!). Pressure for an hour; natural release if you’re not in a hurry, quick release if you are. Check tenderness of beans. If done, serve as is or mash/smash/stick blender them to desired texture! Cook time will be reduced if you soak your beans; with only an hour cooktime, I rarely soak. May be cooked in the slow cooker, too, of course – allow about 8 hours of cooktime on low.
