EverCrisp Apples

From: Fix Brothers (Family Farm), Livingston, NY

Baby Beet Greens

From: Agbotic (certified organic), Sackets Harbor, NY

You’ll find teeny, tiny baby beets at the bottoms of these incredibly delicious and healthy salad greens. Similar in flavor to Swiss chard, beet greens also lend themselves to braising and sautéing.

Frozen Sweet Corn

From: Czajkowski Farm (integrated pest management), Hadley, MA

The Farm Bridge in Kingston, NY, flash-freezes each individual kernel—at the peak of ripeness—so there’s no extra moisture to cause problems or diminish flavor. If you’re following a recipe that calls for canned or fresh corn, simply drop our handy boil-in-the-bag pouch into boiling water for 10 minutes, then allow the corn to cool before incorporating.

How Much to Expect in Your Bag:

Corn Tortillas

From: All Souls (certified organic), Warren, VT

All Souls makes its tortillas the authentic Mexican way—treating heirloom corn with limestone to create nixtamal, which is then stone-ground into masa. The upside of this traditional technique? Flavor, of course, but also nutrition: In addition to providing calcium, the limestone helps with the assimilation of niacin. Just remember to refrigerate these beauties, as they don’t contain the preservatives found in the standard grocery-store version. They’re also free of the gums that render mass-market tortillas pliable, so warm before serving.  

Recipes Ideas:
Cheesy Chicken Enchilada Skillet
Classic Ground Beef Tacos
Easy Red Chilaquiles

How Much to Expect in Your Bag:
Family: 8 tortillas
Standard: 8 tortillas
Small: 8 tortillas
Single: 8 tortillas

 

Frozen Diced Bell Peppers

From: Hepworth Farms (certified organic), Milton, NY

Talk about convenience! This mix of green, red, and orange bell peppers were washed and cut before being flash frozen. Just thaw them out and use in any recipe that calls for diced bell peppers. Bonus: One cup of chopped raw bell pepper, especially red, contains 150% of the recommended daily value of Vitamin C!

Recipe Ideas:
Avocado Bell Pepper Salad
Mexican Rice with Tomatoes
Smoky Chipotle Vegetarian Chili

How Much to Expect in Your Bag:
Family: 10 oz
Standard: 10 oz
Small: 10 oz
Single: N/A

Parboiled Pinto Beans

From: Vermont Bean Crafters (certified organic), Waitsfield, Vermont

Vermont Bean Crafters soaks these organic pintos overnight, kickstarting an enzymatic process that makes them easier to digest. The beans are also lightly pre-cooked, so all you have to is heat them up in a bit of water. Pretty cool, right? Combine with a whole grain such as brown rice for a virtually fat-free, high-protein meal, or use in one of the healthy Mexican recipes below.

Recipe Ideas:
Pinto Bean Stew (slow-cooker!)
Shredded Turkey & Pinto Bean Burritos
Tomato & Butternut Squash Posole

How Much to Expect in Your Bag:
Family: 32 oz
