Asian Pack

 

Ingredients to inspire your Asian-themed dining adventures! 
Chinese Chicken Salad (fancy), Chinese chicken salad (simple – shred Napa cabbage, carrot, chicken breast; top with snow peas, celery, and seasoned rice vinegar), broccoli beefand stir frys galore! We always keep dumplings in the freezer – they’re a delicous andquick snack or supper! These vegetable dumplings are my daughter’s favorite. The carnivores in my life enjoy them, too, but prefer these Easiest Pork and Cabbage Dumplings Ever.

 

See your state Contribution Page for pack details!

Long Fresh Green Chiles
Approx 25 Lbs

 

Let the pepper roasting begin! Serve these delicious chiles roasted and peeled, whole or diced, and in flavorful sauces. They are excellent in green sauce and pair well with rice, chicken, pork and monterey jack cheese for some delicious concoctions. Chile rellenos are simple and delicious! Have you tried raw chile rellenos? Just as delicious as the cooked variation! You can simply wash and freeze or roast and peel first – I separate roasted chiles with wax paper before freezing for ease of use. You can pickle peppers (can you hear the rhyme?), pressure can peppers, water bath marinated peppers, and salsa-ify them! Don’t forget pepper jelly!

Red Seedless Grapes
Approx 18 Lb

 

If you ask my kids, grapes are nature’s candy! Great for eating fresh, my kids also love to eat them frozen and use them as ice cubes in their drinks – because they don’t dilute and they’re fun to eat! Add to fruit salad and green salad, the kids’ holiday punch, or sangria! You can be adventurous and make grapejuice!

Mushrooms

Approx twelve 8oz packages

 

We’re so excited for mushrooms! Store in the refrigerator in paper bags and use within the week, or dehyrdate; parboil or saute and freeze; or pickle! 
 

Short-term storage

Store In the refrigerator wrapped in paper towels or a paper bag and use within the week.

Long-term storage options
Freeze: To store longer than a week, clean, trim, remove gills (optional), and: saute and cool; or steam and plunge into ice water bath; or blanche and plunge into ice water bath. For each method, just cook half way for best results. Allow to air dry, throw on a cookie sheet lined with parchment or wax paper and flash-freeze in your freezer. Once frozen, quickly transfer to freezer-safe storage! To use, just throw right in to your recipe.

Dehydrate: Dehydrating is easy and dehydrated mushrooms take up very little space! Slice in even slices and dehydrate. Store as you do your dry spices. And once you have dehydrated mushrooms, you can grind in a blender and revel in the JOY that is mushroom powder! A flavor punch (umami) without the texture that my crazy kids don’t appreciate. Delicious in eggs, soups and stews, gravies and pasta sauces, burgers and meatloaf!

Nectarines
Approx 25 Lb

 

The epitome of summer is the scent of a ripening nectarine. They can be used as a substitute for peaches in recipes, and have twice the vitamin A and more vitamin C and potassium than that more popular cousin! They freeze and bottle beautifully, too! 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!
