Apple Sampler Pack

 
Add extra fruit to your basket! A variety of apples to delight your tastebuds.
 
Hoping for Honeycrisp, Quince, Gala, Fuji, Pink Lady, Golden Delicious, Jonathan, Braeburn, Granny Smith, and Jonagold

Lunchbox 
Pack

 

Have kids packing lunches or like having extra “finger food”? This pack is for you! Fill those tummies with something delicious and nutritious if you want those brains to fill up with reading, writing and arithmetic. We all think better with a full tummy and without artificial refined ingredients. So many kids “problem” classroom behaviors iron out when they start eating a clean diet.

 

Hoping for Bartlett Pears, Plums, Grapes, Bananas, Gala Apples and Grape Tomatoes

Soup Pack

 

We love soup regardless of the weather! You can even use this as the basis for stew. The possibilities are endless.  

These ingredients make for a great base for split pea soup, zuppa toscana, beef stew, and hearty chicken stew.

Hoping for Kale, Yukon potatoes, Carrots, Celery, Onions, Fresh Rosemary and Parsley

Fuji Apples 

Approx 125 count

Approx 38 Lbs

 

Fuji apples are crisp, sweet and juicy and are an all around solid choice as an apple. I love them in all the following ways:

 

 

- Fresh eating apple
- Apple Sauce
- Fruit Rolls
- Apple Pie
- Apple Crisp

 

Fresh Sugar-Free Applesauce is easy and delicious! In a stovetop or electric pressure cooker, put in:

-Apples (at least 10, up to enough to fill your pot to the Max line
-1/2 cup water
-Optional: Cinnamon to taste (we do about a Tblsp)
-Optional: Vanilla (we do about a tsp)

 

Peel and core your apples, fill pot to Max line (I’ve thrown in a couple of pears, too), pressure for 10 minutes, release the pressure if you’re in a hurry, natural release if you’re not, and blend – I like my stick/immersion blender as it easily allows me to keep some chunkiness. Adjust seasoning as desired – more cinnamon, splash of vanilla, some sweet spice blend, whatever. Throw in your refrigerator and enjoy all week!

Any kind or mix of apples will do, though using only Granny Smiths will be tart. I tend to do a max of four Granny Smith per full pot of apples for sauce.

Kale

Approx 24 bunches

 

Make kale chips (a family favorite!); braised kale; kalesalad; juice it or put it in smoothies, egg scrambles, pasta, and soups and stews; and on pizza! This superfood veggie is so versatile and so good for you. My current daily breakfast: fresh kale, sweet potato (cubed, roasted, and frozen), chopped garlic, olive oil in a pan; top with a fried egg, homemade sriracha, and crumbled bacon or sausage if there’s any languishing in the fridge! It is an amazing start to my day!

Yellow Peaches
Approx 22 Lbs

 

Summer means stone fruit! 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!

Russet Potatoes

Approx 60 count
Approx 50 Lbs

Large Bakers!

 

Mashed potatoes, baked potatoes, potato soup, potatoes in stews! How about make-ahead mashed or twice-baked potatoes? Perfect to ease your holiday cooking! There are several ways to store potatoes for long-term storage:  use a root cellar, dehydrate, freeze, bottle. Root cellar: a dark, cool, dry place with a consistent temperature of 35-40 degrees and some ventilation. No fruits in there with the potatoes! To dehydrate: Wash, then slice or dice, blanch, and dehydrate. Peel only if desired (I never do!). To use, rehydrate and cook like you would raw potatoes. Freeze: make twice-baked potatoes, my sons’ *favorite* method! Make and freeze mashed potatoes, the second favorite method among the menfolk in my house. Or slice for fries, par-cook, and freeze for later. Bottling: potatoes must be pressure-canned, and having a shelf full of bottled potato is sure to make lunch and supper sides quick and easy! Hot hint: we take dehydrated potatoes and twice-baked potatoes camping and stay-cationing. Makes for easy breakfasts and excellent supper sides (re)baked in the fire!
