Lemons
Approx 165 count

Approx 38 Lb

 

So many options, they’re impossible to list! Lemonade concentrates will change your summer – and your winter! We love lemonade in iced tea. Candied lemon peel makes an amazing snack and gift. Give me lemon curd and you’ve got a friend for life. Make Lemon remolata to finish your Italian dishes, vinaigrette, Honey-Lemon syrups, Lemon salt, Lemon butter, Preserved Lemons in brine, Lemoncello, Lemon sauce, Lemon syrup, Lemon citrus suckers, Sugared lemon to decorate your tablescape, Lemon pie lotions and Lemon soap, Lemon-mint foot baths! Muffins, pies, cakes. See what I mean? Options! And great for gifts!

Mangoes

Approx 12 count
Approx 4 kilos

 

Mangoes are a great, fresh addition to salsas, smoothies, yogurt, granola! Make mango water, mango sorbet, or mango-mint limeade!

Pineapple
Approx 5 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.

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!

Russet Potatoes
Approx 50 Lb

 

Mashed potatoes, baked potatoes, potato soup, potatoes in stews! How about make-ahead mashed, roasted, 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/roast, 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!

Tangerines
Approx 20 Lb

 

I can’t keep these in the house for long – the kids eat them up like crazy! Perfect for lunchboxes, snacks, and breakfast sides, they are sweet while being tangy and fresh, and full of Vitamin C and phytonutrients!
