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!

Assorted
Citrus Pack

 

Chock-full of Vitamin C, this is a variety of citrus to delight your tastebuds! We love to make up mini-citrus packs as gifts for teachers, coaches, and neighbors. Or fill your home with amazing scents by slicing and putting in water on your cooktop any combination of: citrus, cinnamon, clove, vanilla, pine needles, and cranberries.

 

Hoping for Blood Orange, Minneola, Navel Oranges, Grapefruit Local, Lemons, and Limes.

Mexican Pack

 

Ingredients to complement your south-of-the-border-themed dishes! We absolutely love making fresh salsasfajitas (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 Tomatillos, Tomatoes Salsa, Avocado, Anaheim Peppers, Jalapeno, Cilantro, Lime, Yellow Onion, and Green Onion.

Blackberries

Approx twelve 6 oz containers

 

Don’t leave these sitting! Delicious fresh, frozen, jammed, syruped (is that a word?), make a crisp or crumble, toss in a smoothie, smother ice cream or yogurt. Enjoy!

Broccoli
Approx 14 bunches

 

Perfect for finger-food snacks in lunchboxes! Great to par boil and freeze! Make last-minute dinners easy. And don’t toss those stalks – trim, peel, and slice in sticks or rounds before cooking or keep raw as a dipper on a crudite tray! They are milder in flavor than the florets but just as delicious!

FREEZING: I soak in salt water, cut into consistent size, then rinse well. Blanche, plunge immediately into ice water to cool, and freeze in freezer bags.

STEAMING: If you have an electric pressure cooker, prep the same way, put in steamer basket, add 1 cup water, and set on high/manual for 0 (zero!) minutes and carefully manually release immediately. Perfect, hands-free steamed broccoli!

Mandarin Oranges
Approx 30 lbs

 

These are a great balance of sweet and tart and very juicy! Easy peeling and perfect for lunchboxes and snacks. We love to add citrus to our Christmas stockings and these are a perfect size! Refrigerate to hold ripeness level. These are similar to Cuties.

Pineapple
Approx 8 count

 

Delicious sliced fresh and in smoothies, add to jams, and bottle chunks! Freezes beautifully for future smoothies or later processing. We make smoothie kits with our favorite fruit and veggie combos for dump, blend, and run mornings! Juice some up with oranges or mango for a super special and delicious breakfast beverage. Have you tried dehydrated pineapple? So easy and delicious! A perfect summer-y, sweet, and healthy snack at home or on the go. Grill them outside or indoors on a grill pan for a delicous dessert served alone or topping ice cream and frozen yogurt.

My kids love Virgin Pina Coladas as a special treat, and they’re pros at making them – even my 8yo! Into the blender goes chunks of pineapple, coconut milk, and just a squeeze of lime. Add ice to make it a frozen dessert – No sugar or dairy required!
