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!

Ultimate Fall Pumpkin & Squash Guide

It is officially fall which means it is pumpkin & squash season. There are so many varieties to choose from and they each serve different purposes with baking, carving or décor. We have put together the ultimate pumpkin and squash guide to help you know what pumpkin or squash will work best for your fall festivities.

Apple Gourds This unique gourd has a nearly perfect apple shape. They are most often used in crafts and fall displays and can be painted red or made into birdhouses.
Mini Pumpkin The apprentice mini pumpkin is not quite a full-sized pumpkin which makes it great for the crafters and school classrooms.
Australian Blue Squash   Australian Blue Squash is a great treat from regular green and yellow squashes. This squash is quite large with a grayish blue, almost forest green exterior. The interior is a bright and tender orange, pumpkin tasting flesh.
Australian Green Squash   The Australian Green Squash is dark green with light colored dots. It also has small patches and faint stripes. The flesh is tender and delicious so perfect for baking.
Big Mac Big Mac pumpkins are extremely large, weighing anywhere between fifty and two hundred pounds. Big Mac pumpkins are not often used for cooking or baking due to their size the flesh becomes dry and fibrous. Most commonly the Big Mac pumpkin is used as a carving pumpkin.
Birdhouse Gourds   Birdhouse or bottle gourds are one of the thick-skinned gourds that are mainly used for crafts or decoration. Gourd birdhouses are attractive to many species of birds including wrens, chickadees, swallows, bluebirds, titmice, and nuthatches.
Blue Pumpkin Blue pumpkins aren’t sad. They’re supposed to be blue. These pumpkins are great for decorative usage and can be carved into blue Jack-O-Lanterns. They can also be used for baking; just peel and cut into pieces before baking.
Cinderella Pumpkins Cinderella Pumpkins feature an exotic blue color and an almost square appearance with deep ribbing. The inside has a deep orange, sweet flesh that can be used for pies, soup, and gourmet culinary delights.
Corn Stalks Dried Corn stalks are the perfect fall decorations. They are great for displaying on your porch with pumpkins and gourds.
Cushaw Squash The green-striped cushaw is technically a winter squash though it also produces a spring harvest. It has a tender, pale orange or yellow flesh and is most often pureed and used for baking. It has a very mild flavor that can be overpowered if not careful.
Jack-be-little Pumpkin These pumpkins can be orange or white, and are great for kids. Use them to decorate or they can be baked. Roasting with a little brown sugar, cinnamon and butter is a popular form of preparing these little gems.
Knucklehead Pumpkin   Knucklehead pumpkins are bright to deep orange in color and covered in varying amounts of warts, scabs or bumps. As the pumpkin matures the skin and warts will change from a dark green to completely orange although some warts will may display slight scabbing or green coloring. Similar to other varieties of pumpkins, Knuckleheads, have a hard, vertically ridged, thick rind and have many culinary and decorative uses.
Local Pumpkins   These pumpkins are perfect for carving a scary Jack-O-Lantern.
One Too Many Squash This well named, unique variety has pale red veins which become a darker red with time, giving it an unusual and attractive bloodshot-eye appearance. They are great for decorative use, carving, or making tasty pumpkin pies.
Ornamental Gourds Ornamental gourds are decorative on their own as natural birdhouses or in craft projects. The oddly-shaped colorful gourds often seen in autumn decorations and can be dried and saved for future years.
Sweet Lightning Pumpkin This unique white ornamental mini pumpkin feautures orange or green stripes.  These little treasures are fun to decorate with and great for kids.
Red Warty Thing Squash   Aptly named, this Red Warty Thing looks like an overgrown ornamental gourd. But don’t be fooled by its peculiar looks; not only is it a super fall decoration, the stringless, fine-grained flesh is of excellent eating quality.
Swan Gourds This gourd is dark green with cream flecks and is shaped just like a swan with a long, elegant neck. With their graceful form and alluring color, they are naturally ornamental and most often used as décor.
Turk Turban Squash   These come in bizarre shapes with extravagant coloration that vary from bright orange, to green or white. It has golden-yellow flesh and its taste is reminiscent to hazelnut. It is popular for centerpieces but can be sliced and hollowed to be filled with soup.
Uncle Fester Squash   This pink to orange Pumpkin has markings that grow to look like peanuts. You may not want to take it out to the ball park, but it will fit in nicely when decorating for fall. It can also be used for baking, just peel and cut it into pieces before baking.
White Ghost Pumpkin This pumpkin has a white skin and white flesh. It’s not good for eating, but perfect for a Jack-O-Lantern.

Utah’s 2017 Best Bagger

We are so proud to announce that Kaylee Hudson, a Spanish Fork Macey’s team member, was named “Best Bagger” at the Utah Food Industry Association’s state Best Bagger competition yesterday. The contest was held at Thanksgiving Point and brought the top baggers from 24 stores face to face to claim the title of Utah’s Best Bagger. Kaylee will have several months to prepare before they head to Las Vegas, Nevada in February to represent Utah in the National Best Bagger Competition.

“It’s great being able to represent my store and show how important baggers are for our guests. It’s important to make sure everything is bagged correctly so guests receive their items undamaged and in great condition,” said Kaylee Hudson.

The Best Bagger competition is sponsored by the National Grocers Association. The competition evaluates baggers on speed, how heavy each bag is, and how products are grouped and organized inside each sack. Baggers of any age can compete. The national winner is selected during a contest at the National Grocer Associations annual conference and receives a $10,000 cash prize.

“We are so proud of Kaylee and can’t wait to have her represent us and Utah at the National competition,” said Steve Holm, district manager for Macey’s. “Our teams really care about our guests and I think the way our baggers pack their groceries shows that too.”
