First Look. Hamptons Lane packages everything well to prevent anything from breaking (though I did have an issue this month).
Every box comes with an information guide with everything in the box and recipes for all the items.
As a subscriber, you can add-on additional items to your box.
There was an additional recipe in the box for Guacamole De Mango.
Natural Granite Molcajete by Imusa Hamptons Lane included a molcajete in their very first box. I ended up giving it to a friend. Since expanding my taste preferences, I have wished I had one of these. Many people use these to make guacamole, but you can grind garlic, chilies and herbs too. Before you use your molcajete, you need to season it. Hamptons Lane sent an email out giving directions for this process.
Carnitas Spice Blend by Melissa Guerra, San Antonio, TX I love pork carnitas, but have never made them before. This seasoning is just for carnitas and is made with cumin, chile powder and organo. There is a recipe for beer braised pork carnitas in the book, that I need to try soon.
Ancho Chile Peppers from The Spice House, Chicago, IL You don’t have to settle for chile pepper powder when you can grind your own. This dried peppers have a fruity exterior skin and the veins inside are much hotter.
Cilantro Pineapple Salsa with Roasted Peppers and Tomatillos by Zukali Mexican Gourmet, McKinney, TX This was the one food item that I was most excited to try in the box. Sadly, the seal came undone and some leaked out in the box. This is made with cilantro, pineapple, fire roasted jalapeno peppers and tomatillos. This salsa is a combination of sweet and hot flavors, perfect for those carnitas.
Santa Maria Heirloom Pinquito Beans by Rancho Gordo, Napa, CA These little beans are said to pack lots of flavor. There is a Pinquito Bean Dip that I am going to make to go with the carnitas.
Final Thought: This was one of my favorite Hamptons Lane, because they combined so many of my favorite foods in one box. I can’t wait to use my molcajete to grind those peppers to make some Ancho Chile Chili with some bean dip.
