California Blend Pack

 

Broccoli, Cauliflower, and Carrots – great to par boil and freeze! Make last-minute dinners easy. Perfect for finger-food snacks in lunchboxes! My kids cheered when they opened the box last week!

Mexican Pack

 

Ingredients to complement your south-of-the-border-themed dishes! We absolutely love making salsas, fajitas (with or without meat!), and this Mexican hot sauce – we make something similar and add a teaspoon of oregano and double the garlic. My big kids use this sauce on everything!

Hoping for Hatch Pepper, Tomatillos, Tomatoes Salsa, White Onion, Green Onion, Lime, Jalapenos, Cilantro, and Avocado.

Tropical Pack

 

A tropical-themed variety to inspire you and bring sunshine to your table! Serve up a tropical fruit salad or smoothie for Sunday brunch; make fun and refreshing flavored watersServe plaintains for a delicious dinner side (try with just a bit of sour cream to be naughty!) Try Fried Green PlaintainsFried Ripe Plaintains, or Baked Plaintains. We like them all!

 

Hoping for Pineapple, Papaya, Mango, Kiwi, Plantain, Limes, and Coconut.

Simple Fruit Water / Agua Fresca

Fruit water, or agua fresca, is so refreshing
and so easy!

Toss fruit into a pitcher or jar and steep for a bit and enjoy; or throw the fresh fruit(s) in the blender, add water, sugar, and lime juice, pour over ice, and be transported to the tropics!

Smoothie Freezer Kit
We love the tropical variety for smoothie kits – slice and freeze for quick dump, blend, and run mornings!

 

Fruits and veggies of your choice sliced and frozen on a baking sheet, then put into serving-sized bags. Grab, dump into blender with some liquid (water, fruit juice, milk of choice), blend, pour, and out the door you go!

Add protein powder if desired.

No added sugars! If you need it sweeter, try adding a drizzle of honey or soaked pitted dates!

Gala 

Apples

Local

Approx 138 count

 

These are dense, juicy, very sweet and low acid with a hint of citrus flavor. We love homemade applesauce!  Of course you could always do dried apples, regular apples sauce, fruit rolls, apple pie filling or apple butter! Plenty of options to make some healthy and delicious snacks and treats!

 

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.

Cauliflower
Approx 12 count

 

Cauliflower is SO versatile! Do you eat a paleo or low carb diet, or do you just make sure to serve a veggie or two every night for dinner?  Either way this is a great opportunity to get your hands on lots of Cauliflower to par boil and freeze! Make last-minute dinners easy, and don’t forget to prep and freeze cauliflower crust for gluten-free pizza! Roasted cauliflower soup is divine. Roast the whole head: Brush with olive oil, sprinkle with garic, and roast the whole head. I’ll cut into steaks, roast, and serve with salsa or chimichurri for my vegetarian kiddos or chop and make seasoned “taco meat” and add lentils or quinoa. 

Or, if you want an slightly naughty and amazing and kid-friendly dish:

Recipe:
Steam cauliflower florets to just-tender
Dip one side in egg wash, then dip in Parmesan cheese,
Pan-fry in a bit of olive oil until golden brown and delicious!

Our kids will annihilate two heads of cauliflower in one sitting when we prepare it this way. A Sally family secret recipe… now not-so-secret!

Bi-Color Corn

Approx 48 count

 

Fantastic fresh (grill! steam! boil! salsa!), frozen, and bottled! Stock up to have sweet summer corn all winter. Check out our blog for corn recipes! For different ways to freeze corn, check out this https://anoregoncottage.com/freeze-corn-three-ways-blanched-unblanched-whole/

Cara Cara Oranges

Cara Cara Oranges are the perfect kid snack! Juicy, very sweet, low acid, and usually seedless, these are perfect served in wedges on a plate or in your beverage.

Bartlett Pears

Pears fresh, pears bottled, pear tart, pear crisp, pear pie, pear cake, pear salad, pear relish, roasted pears, poached pears! Eat out of hand, killer spiced pear or apple-pear butter for brunch, apple-pear sauce for the lunchbox! These are beautiful bottled, and luscious baked en galette. Swoon!
