Asparagus

Approx 11 Lbs

 

Grilled, roast, steam, and sautee! A little olive oil and garlic to roast, and finish with red pepper flake is our staple. Mix it up with a spritz of soy sauce or coconut aminos! If there are leftovers (which there never are), asparagus makes a lovely salad topper.

Asparagus is one of those things that lets me know spring is on the way. We just can’t get enough of asparagus as we defrost out of winter. Have you tried it pickled? So many amazing ways to eat it.

 

Try this delicious appetizer: Bacon Wrapped Asparagus! My kids love it as a decadent afternoon snack!

Snap Beans

Approx 25 Lbs

 

Throw in a pan for 10 minutes and then finish the final 5 minutes with garlic, olive oil, and red pepper flake, or with with garlic, olive oil, and coconut aminos or soy sauce! Or quick steam and finish the same way! These are excellent leftover on a salad the next day.

Green beans are an easy-to-freeze and easy-to-pressure can (or water bath can if pickling) veggie that will give us all some easy and fast dinner time options. I love adding them to soups, stews, and stirfrys.

Jumbo Carrots
Approx 50 lbs

 

Shredded, roasted, steamed, peeled and dipped, juiced, pressure canned, pickled, par boiled and frozen, carrots are multi-use! Roast them for a naturally sweet treat. My kids cheer when they see that big bag – it means apple/carrotjuice is on the menu for the week!

Grab some celery and onions or onions and bell peppers and chop up a bunch for mirepoix and holy trinity to throw in the freezer for easy starts to innumerable savory dishes!

Louisiana Strawberries
Approx 8 Lb

 

Delicious fresh, in smoothies, frozen, jammed, syruped (is that a word?); dehydrate in fruit rolls; make fruit salad and fruit pizza; smother ice cream, yogurt, cereal, and shortcake; and our favorite: strawberry-topped gluten-free crepes! A favorite dish of my kids is Greek yogurt topped with strawberries and drizzled with raw honey.

Mississippi 

Long Grain

White Rice

Approx 25 Lbs

Dry
