Description

One full bag 1kg (2.2lbs) of ACO certified organic, also Japan certified organic JAS, fresh frozen vegetable mix, also known as spring harvest mix from Belgium, Europe. You get an equal mix of green peas, sweet corn, and diced carrots. Freshly harvested, blanched, and then individually flash-frozen (IQF) for freshness and quality. Heating up the vegetable mix with grass-fed butter and sea salt in the fry-pan is the most popular preparation method. Our family stocks multiple bags in the freezer for quick meals and convenience. 

Blanching is a non-chemical simple process of scalding the vegetables for 60 seconds in 90°C (200°F) hot water and then shock cooling in ice water to stop the cooking process. Blanching stops enzyme actions which cause loss of flavor, color, and texture, it also cleanses the surface of dirt and organisms, brightens the color, and helps to preserve the vitamins.

All our imported fruits and vegetables are strictly tested for E Coli, coliforms, molds, yeasts as well as listeria and salmonella in the country of export, in the country of packaging, and through selective sampling during import inspections in Japan and therefore meet very high microbiological safety standards. However, non-processed products of natural origin, especially non-GMO and certified organic will always have a certain degree of minor defects (less than 5%) these include, decolorations, insect damage, broken damage, crumble damage, squashed damage, over or under maturity, and minor natural non-harmful mold.

100% natural, non-GMO, no added nasties or chemical treatments are done. No use of chemically synthesized fertilizers and pesticides. See more about certified organic below.


About Certified Organic

This product is certified Japan Agricultural Standard Organic (JAS) - both in the country of origin and Japan. Japan has one of the world's strictest organic certification standards. But what does certified organic mean when it comes to fruits and vegetables?

✔ Free of harmful synthetic chemical inputs such as fertilizer, pesticides, antibiotics, food additives, irradiation, and the use of sewage sludge.

✔ Free of genetically modified seeds (non-GMO)

✔ The farmland and soil in use have at least been 3 years free of any chemical treatment before the harvest has been certified as organic.

✔ Organic certifications come with multiple audits or on-site visits a year. Organic producers are rigidly checked and inspected by governmental bodies or certified third parties. Organic certification requires detailed bookkeeping and documentation. This makes organic produce technically 100% traceable from farm to table.

✔ Organic certification standards require a strict separation of non-organic certified produce starting from the farmland, soil, harvesting, processing, export, and even import and storage.

✔ Organic farming is a more sustainable alternative when it comes to food production. The lack of harmful pesticides and a wider variety of plants enhances biodiversity and results in better soil quality and reduced pollution from fertilizer or pesticide run-off.

✔ Organic vegetables and fruits are produced mostly by family-owned farms that own smaller acres of organic land. Although the demand is increasing, organic land does not even make 30% of all farmland in any given country (Japan ranks at the very bottom!). This makes organic farming lucrative and more profitable for farmers and gives them a fair chance to live a sustainable life and support their local communities.

✔ Certified organic in Japan and Australia (as well as in most industrialized countries) is a protected word and the use is legally restricted, meaning that you can be rest assured that Horizon Farms is an officially registered certified organic importer and all organic imported produce has been inspected and verified in the export country as well as in Japan.

It is also important to mention that organic produce is more cost-intensive. Organic farming has lower yields compared to conventional farming and is oftentimes more labor-intensive as well. Additionally, organic certification and auditions require annual fees for producers, exporters, and importers resulting in higher prices for the end consumers.

Finally a nice breakfast sausage in Japan

Coming from the west one tends to do without when it comes to certain traditional foods. This is the best breakfast sausage I have tasted in years. The bonus is that you can make a perfectly sized patty out of two sausages for the perfect egg and sausage sandwich.

I will be ordering again!

They’re easy to eat because they’re skinless! The herbal scent is amazing!

Translated from Japanese: They’re naturally without skin, but these are soft and easy to eat. It has just the right amount of salt and you can smell the herbs well. At times when you don’t want to eat more than two sausages, if you just cut open the package, you can conveniently separate them in their frozen state.
Without oil, I slowly cooked them with their own oils and eggs. It was extremely delicious!
I want to stock up on them in my freezer.
I need to buy a bigger freezer!!!

These sausages, that are carefully made, are amazing!

Translated from Japanese: They’re big and the meat very delicious. I think that safe and organic sausages at this price where you also know the origin of the ingredients are too cheap.
After boiling the whole bag, I cooked them and ate them with grain mustard. I was very satisfied with one pack, so I think it's okay to use about two.

Very meaty!

Translated from Japanese: They were really good!
I boiled and cooked them it in a frying pan and left no bite behind!
The taste of the meat was solid and the aroma of the herbs used was wonderful.
I want to buy them again. I wondered if four are enough, but because they’re so big, two people could each enjoy 3 pieces.
I’m very satisfied!

Translated from Japanese: They’re filling. A solid meal was completed with one pack. Not only are they juicy, but the herb scent is also authentic, and they were well received by my family! I want to order again.

Translated from Japanese: Some people may find it difficult to just boil them. I like herbs so I liked the scent. I wasn't used to the texture, so when I cut and cooked them until crispy in a frying pan, they looked like hamburgers and were very delicious. If you add a lot of garlic and put them in tomato sauce, they go well with pasta.

Translated from Japanese: The raw sausage felt like it was packed with meat, and it was filling. I think it's a sausage that the experts likes. It was so delicious that I kept remembering eating it even days after. Thank you.
