Get’em while they’re (mildy) hot! Hatch Chiles are here, direct from the Hatch Valley of New Mexico! These chiles range in size from 6-9 inches and offer a mild-medium heat. A true Southwestern favorite, Hatch Chiles are meaty and make for great relleno, queso and salsa recipes! Not only are they tasty, but they’re quite nutritious too - a medium-sized Hatch Chile contains as much Vitamin C as 6 oranges! Hatch Chiles are tasty, good for you and make great roasted additions to salads, soups and dips!
Behold the powerful Pomegranate! It one of the oldest known fruits and is a major symbol of health due to being so nutrient-dense and rich in antioxidants — unrivaled by other foods! They’re here to increase heart health and help support immunity all while adding a tart crunch to salads and rich flavor to drinks!
 
They have a leathery skin that houses a ton of juicy, edible seeds. It's easy, fast and fun to get them all out! Carefully slice the Pomegranate in half in a horizontal direction, then gently pry on each half to loosen the seeds. Over a bowl, place the seeded side on the palm of one hand and (without whacking your fingers) repeatedly tap on it with a wooden spoon until all the seeds pop out. Optimal Pomegranate seed accumulation complete!
Don’t mistake this fruit for a lumpy yellow apple or pear – it’s a Pineapple Quince! Because they’re not meant to be eaten raw, Pineapple Quinces require a bit of magic in order for it to be transformed from tart to sweet. Once it’s peeled, cored and roughly chopped, boil the flesh and watch it turn light pink to almost purple as its high pectin content allows its sugars to take over. When cooked down, many Pineapple Quince-lovers create pastes, jellies and jams – a perfect addition to desserts as well as cheeses, stews and roasts.
