Simplify Holiday Cooking with Augason Farms

Whether you and your family like to eat them on their own or add to a favorite recipe, there’s no denying that vegetables are an essential part of any holiday cooking. Even the pickiest eaters can’t resist those traditional hearty dishes that are a staple at Thanksgiving dinner.

This month, Macey’s and Augason Farms are teaming up to offer you a great deal on freeze-dried and dehydrated vegetables that will be sure to simplify your holiday cooking. Because while everyone loves the food served at Thanksgiving dinner, no one likes to be stuck in the kitchen all day chopping, dicing and slicing when they really want to be spending time with family who traveled to be together just for the holiday. This Thanksgiving, Augason Farms can help you save time in the kitchen so you can really enjoy the holiday.

In-Store Savings for Your Thanksgiving Dinner

All Thanksgiving dinners have their indispensible seasoned stuffing mix, and Augason Farms is making it even better for you this year. During the month of November, when you purchase any two Augason Farms vegetable items, you’ll receive $2 off Stuffing Mix. Speaking of which, no stuffing mix is complete without Augason Farm’s dehydrated onions and celery, which saves you from the worry of cutting and chopping (or getting teary-eyed while doing it) and gives that stuffing a traditional flavor you all love!

Simplified Holiday Recipe Ideas

Stuffing isn’t the only dish you’ll need to go along with the turkey this year. Here are a few other ideas for simplifying your holiday cooking on Thanksgiving with Augason Farms veggies:

Melt-In-Your-Mouth Mashed Potatoes

You’ve washed, peeled, chopped, and boiled your potatoes only to realize you were so distracted checking on the turkey you boiled them too long! If this is a familiar story, cut out the time and the hassle of made-from-scratch mashed potatoes this year and instead let Augason Farms do the work for you, but still enjoy the same great taste. Augason Farms Potato Gems are complete mashed potatoes that just require water and heat! There’s practically no labor and no stress involved. If you want to add an extra twist to these, try add-ins like:

  • Cream cheese
  • Sour cream
  • Butter
  • Garlic
  • Fresh herbs like chives and parsley

With the delicious taste of these potato gems, you’ll have everyone fooled that you didn’t slave away in the kitchen all day just to make them!

Crockpot Cream Corn

Finding space in the oven is a struggle each year for all of those warm, hearty sides you want to serve along with your turkey. Free up some space with this delicious crockpot recipe for cream corn! Use Augason Farms Freeze Dried Sweet Corn in this recipe to get that just-picked flavor in this dish that many consider to be a true comfort food.

In a crockpot, just combine:

  • 20-30 oz. Augason Farms Freeze Dried Sweet Corn (rehydrated)
  • 8 oz. Augason Farms Cheese Blend Powder
  • ½ cup Augason Farms Butter Powder
  • ½ cup Morning Moo’s Low Fat Milk Alternative
  • 1 tsp. Augason Farms Iodized Salt
  • ½ tsp. pepper

Cook on high for 2-3 hours or until all ingredients are melted and combine easily when stirred. It’s really that simple!

Easy Spinach Artichoke Dip

Every Thanksgiving gathering needs some delicious appetizers to keep everyone’s hunger at bay while the turkey is finishing up. This recipe only requires a few ingredients and a couple minutes to put together. Plus, with Augason Farms Dehydrated Spinach Flakes, making this yummy appetizer is even easier!

In a pan over medium heat, combine the following until melted:

  • 8 oz. Augason Farms Cheese Blend Powder
  • ½ cup sour cream or Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded

Then stir in:

  • 1 cup Augason Farms Dehydrated Spinach Flakes (rehydrated)
  • 14 oz. artichoke hearts (chopped)

Cook for 1-2 minutes over medium heat, stir in 4 minced garlic cloves, then season with salt and cayenne pepper.

Here’s to a delicious, easy (and stress-free) Thanksgiving!

SURVIVAL RULES OF 3

Are you familiar with the Survival Rules of 3?  The emergency preparedness and food-storage experts explain it like this:

In an extreme situation you cannot survive for more than:

  • 3 minutes without air
  • 3 hours without shelter
  • 3 days without water
  • 3 weeks without food

Our Newsletter this month focuses on the third and fourth Survival Rules—Food and Water.

 READY TIP:  Be Prepared with Plenty of Food and Water  

 Water: 

To be adequately prepared for any emergency or disaster, health agencies recommend you store 1 gallon of water per person per day. For a 72-hour emergency kit, you need 3 gallons of water per person.  For each gallon of water, plan on drinking 2 quarts and using 2 quarts for personal hygiene each day. It might be difficult to store a year’s supply of water, but it is such a necessity, it would be a good idea to try and store 14 gallons of water per person, to last about 2 weeks.

When storing water in clear plastic containers, it is important to store them in areas with low light and heat and keep the containers off the floor. Pallets, bricks or shelving should be used to store your water supply. Commercially packaged water comes with a best-by date and should be rotated or replaced about every 4 years. If you must use older stored water, the taste can be improved by pouring the water back and forth between two containers.

 Food: 

Adults typically need 2200 to 2800 calories per day in an emergency situation; children typically need less–about 1400 calories per day. When planning your emergency food storage, consider how much each person in your family typically eats in a day and match the caloric value of long-term food storage products. Most people start their emergency food storage by preparing a 72-hour kit for each family member. Over time, it is good to increase your amount of long-term food and supplies. Long-term food storage buckets and bulk food storage should typically include enough supplies for three months. Purchasing pre-packaged emergency food kits are helpful, because they take up less space and take out a lot of the guesswork.

 A Note About “Shelter”:  Don’t forget that Maceys and Augason Farms can definitely assist on the “Shelter” front with our National Geographic product line. From emergency tarps and blankets, to fire starters, to flashlight radios, we’ve got you covered.

BIG SAVINGS:  Free Water with Purchase 

Maceys and Augason Farms has come together to offer a FREE CASE of Western Family Water with the purchase of any 3 AUGASON FARMS Entrées and Soups. Mix and match these favorites any way you like!

  • Beef Stroganoff
  • Pasta Alfredo
  • Chili Mac
  • Creamy Potato Soup
  • Cheesy Broccoli Soup
  • Hearty Vegetable Chicken
  • Hearty Vegetable Beef

Food Storage Club June 2016 Newsletter

Food storage professionals tell us that you should store what you typically eat. And that only makes sense.

While most any food may keep you alive in an emergency, common sense tells you to store things you normally eat to make the ordeal less traumatic. Creating such normalcy in a crisis is vital, the pros say.

Imagine yourself and your family in a crisis situation. We can all picture it. Maybe the power is out for several days . . . or longer. Maybe the roads have been closed, due to flooding or another natural disaster. Maybe you’ve been snowed in or stranded because of extreme weather. In any case, you can’t get to the grocery store, so you must depend on what you have on hand.

If you’ve stored things you and your family like to eat, that part of your otherwise traumatic experience will seem more normal, more comforting. Nothing is as reassuring as a full tummy. It can instill feelings of security and well-being when all else around you is in chaos and challenging, as is the case in every emergency. This comforting feeling is further heightened if what you’re eating are your favorites, the things you typically prefer to eat.

So, Macey’s and Augason Farms want you to take a hard look at your food storage to see if you’ve been true to this vital principle. If you have yet to begin a food storage program, this would be an ideal time and way to start.

Some of the most appreciated things in our daily diet are dairy products. We at Macey’s are well aware of our customers’ preferences. So this month we’re featuring the most popular dairy products in the Augason Farms product line.

Milk, butter and cheese, and are primary components of the American diet. So, they should be well represented in your storage.

For milk, Augason Farms offers Country Fresh, a nonfat dry milk. This is as close as it gets to the real thing because it’s made from whole cow’s milk. It’s an economical alternative to whole milk, high in calcium and fortified with vitamins A and D. Country Fresh is perfect for baking because it helps enhance baked items, giving them that wonderful golden brown look. It also retains moisture, so it improves the structure of baked goods and keeps them fresh longer.

For butter, Augason Farms suggests their amazing Food Storage Butter Powder. It’s appropriate for use in any recipe that calls for butter. Useful, versatile and flavorful, Butter Powder can be used in soups, sauces and candies— virtually any recipe that calls for regular butter. It’s made from real, sweet cream butter. Many cooks prefer it for everyday cooking because it’s dehydrated, allowing it to blend in smoothly and easily, mixing directly into the dry ingredients of any recipe. It doesn’t clump, it’s easier to measure and handle, and it has a much longer shelf life.

For cheese, Augason Farms recommends Cheese Blend Powder. It’s ideal for making the creamiest cheese sauces, fondues and dips, the tastiest salad dressings, casseroles, soups and spreads. Almost any side dish or entrée is enriched with the robust flavor and creamy texture of Cheese Blend Powder. For example, it lends a savory, cheesy flavor to macaroni & cheese, an all-time favorite.

For those of you who are looking for a milk alternative, Augason Farms created two whey-based beverages: Moo’s Regular and Moo’s Chocolate.

Moo’s Regular is as delicious as it is nutritious. It looks and tastes like milk, with calcium and added vitamins comparable to 2% milk. It is perfect for drinking or for use any recipe that calls for milk.  Morning Moo’s also serves as an excellent substitute for light cream, requiring only half the recommended water. And here’s an added bonus: Moo’s Regular is well suited for making those sumptuous and healthful smoothies your family loves. Just blend in your favorite Augason Farms dried or freeze dried fruit.

Moo’s Chocolate may be the most delicious chocolate drink you’ve ever tried. Fortified with Vitamins A and D, most people describe it as richer and thicker than regular chocolate milk. Serve Moo’s Chocolate chilled for an amazing taste treat.

Perhaps the best part is that in June, we’re offering discounts up to 40% on these exceptional products. Don’t miss out on these fabulous savings.

Oh . . . and one more thing. Macey’s features Live Prepared’s National Geographic food pouches and gear for those of you who are planning outdoor activities this summer. Not only are these quick and easy-to-prepare meals good for emergency food storage, they are perfect for outdoor camping and backpacking excursions—anytime and anyplace you might go this summer—because all you do is add hot water to make a sumptuous, nutritious and satisfying meal.

We invite you to look over the Live Prepared offerings in the food storage isle in your favorite Macey’s store, right alongside the great Augason Farms products, because they will feature a 10% price discount this month only.

There are a variety of nourishing and easy-to-fix meals from Live Prepared that require neither refrigeration nor special preparation, making them perfect for outdoor activities. Simply pick the kits that you feel will suffice for your needs.

Live Prepared also offers needful tools for outdoor use: for example, water filtration bottles that can filter up to 100 gallons of water while removing 99.99% of bacteria and viruses, allowing you to use otherwise questionable water sources in the wilds, and no one should be without their fire starter for easily making a campfire to cook and to stay warm out there.

Please remember this: Macey’s, Augason Farms and Live Prepared regularly team up to discount emergency food and survival food items in order to help you save as you stock up on your food storage.
