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

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

Augason Farms October Newsletter

It’s time for our bi-annual conference sale and, once again, we’re excited to bring you big savings on Augason Farms emergency food storage products throughout the month of October. Wondering how you can take advantage of this year’s conference sale? Here are a few ideas:

Replenish your emergency food supply. If you’re like most of us, you dip in to your food storage on occasion for everyday use. The conference sale is a good time to take a quick inventory of your food supply and make a list of items you’re running low on (or that you wish you would have had at your fingertips throughout the year).

Start building your emergency stock pile. On average it can take up to 72 hours, or more, for rescue and disaster response units to reach you during a serious crisis situation. If you’re new to emergency preparedness, jump start your emergency stockpile by investing in one Augason Farms 72 Hour Emergency Food Supply Pail per family member. You’ll feel secure knowing that food is there if (or when) the time comes.

Ensure your college student is prepared. This is a frequently overlooked aspect of emergency preparedness. Students can be confined to their campus dorm or apartment during ice storms, windstorms or power outages. Make sure they have plenty of food. The Augason Farms Pantry Pack 7-Day Tote is a great solution because it includes easy-to-prepare instant meals that can be tucked away under most beds.

Prepare beyond your home. Where do you and your family spend significant stretches of time? Perhaps your office, boat, cabin or RV? It’s a good idea to store a couple of Augason Farms 72-Hour Emergency Food Supply Pails in any of these locations. Your office, especially, is a good place to keep a dozen or so Augason Farms Pantry Packs. These are instant, easy-to-prepare meals that are perfect in an emergency and double as a quick meal when you can’t escape for lunch.

Get a head start on your Christmas shopping. This year consider giving an invaluable gift: peace of mind. While peace of mind is not something you can attach a bow to, it’s something that will stay with the recipient well beyond the holiday and, in fact, for years to come.

Throw into your morning granola or oatmeal for some sweetness, or chop up and sprinkle over your favorite cinnamon rolls for the ultimate apple pie cinnamon rolls.

Naturally sweet, these freeze-dried strawberries can be reconstituted and used in any recipe that calls for fresh strawberries—they’re that good! Perfect straight from the can as a delicious way to get your daily Vitamin C and antioxidants, or sprinkle over a bowl of ice cream for a fruity crunch.

Back to School Snacks are Easy with Augason Farms

  • Leave freeze-dried fruit in a container on the counter for them to sprinkle over their cereal or oatmeal, as a sweet and healthier substitute to sugar.

After School Toast

Toast is making a comeback in a big way as a quick and simple meal. It’s versatile and the perfect canvas for any flavors! It’s easy to customize this recipe for even the pickiest palate.

Toast bread to desired crispness. Spread with cream cheese and layer on freeze dried sliced strawberries. Drizzle the top with desired amount of honey and sprinkle with slivered almonds. Cut toast into two triangles and watch it disappear!

Variations: For a sweeter, classic favorite, top toast with peanut butter, Augason Farms Banana Chips (crushed) and a sprinkling of mini chocolate chips.

Keep Grains in Your Diet

Wheat and gluten have been getting a bad reputation lately, but unless you have celiac disease or gluten sensitivity, you don’t want to miss out on the benefits of whole grains. Here are a few benefits to including oats, wheat products and granola in your daily diet.

  1. Whole grains contain a lot of fiber, particularly oats. Because fiber digests slowly, fiber helps you feel fuller for longer. It can also help control blood sugar, lower cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of colon cancer.
  2. Whole grains promote heart health and lower the risk of heart disease. Not only can whole grains like wheat, oats and brown rice lower your “bad” cholesterol, it can also help lower triglycerides—both of which are major contributors to heart disease. It can also help lower your blood pressure.
  3. Whole grains can help you control your weight. One study revealed that women who consumed whole grains, versus refined grains, had a 49% lower risk of weight gain over a period of time.

It doesn’t have to be hard to find grains and oats to use in your meal planning. Augason Farms has a variety of delicious grain products that you can keep stocked in your pantry and food storage for your everyday and emergency needs, including:

  • Augason Farms Regular Rolled Oats– these make for a good hot or cold cereal that gives long lasting energy and can be added to many recipes, including protein bites, granola and smoothies.
  • Augason Farms Long Grain Brown Rice- Brown rice bran and germ layers contain more nutrients than white rice, making it a naturally healthy choice for your food storage supply and everyday use. And because it stays fluffy after cooking, it’s ideal for use in salads, casseroles and stir-fry dishes.
  • Augason Farms Hard White Wheat- When ground, hard white wheat produces light colored flour, while retaining its whole grain goodness and nutrition. It’s perfect for bread making, especially French bread and pizza crusts.

The best part is, when you buy Augason Farms’ products, you are choosing to purchase high quality products that you can feel good about. We are proud to provide our customers with solutions for long-term storage and short-term emergency preparedness.
