Fresh Items: Picked at their peak, cut, and individually quick frozen.
Steam-peeled items: Culinary Farms only uses natural steam peeling, which is easier on both the environment and the food product. Many other processors choose to peel their products using a money-saving lye bath process.
Fire-roasted items: Natural fire roasting adds complexity and roasted notes to chiles and tomatillos. It also adds the perception of a meal cooked on the grill, both in taste and appearance.
