Could I please have the fall harvest spice recipe? I loved that seasoning in the HelloFresh mummy chicken roast dish.

Hi, I am your customer. My son really loves the chicken mummy roast with the cranberry sage stuffing. He is allergic to dairy, so he can’t eat the normal stuffing. When I cooked this meal, he really loved the stuffing. I want to cook it for him this Thanksgiving, but I don’t know how to prepare the fall harvest spice blend. Could you show me how to mix the spice or where I can purchase it? Thank you!

My first! Lovely. What do I do with the nice packaging?

Jacqueline says:

Hi MJ – welcome to the HelloFresh family!! The honeycomb paperboard is 100% curbside-friendly (same with the separators and meal kits). Take summer liners to a nearby recycling center. Trash winter liners. When it comes to ice packs, use scissors to cut a small corner and empty water soluble contents into the trash before recycling this plastic pack. And for the HelloFresh box – fold and discard with the other household recyclables.

Is there a version of this recipe adjusted for high altitude?

Jordan Schultz says:

Hi there! Jordan from our community team here at HelloFresh. Here are a few general tips for you:
– Baked goods take longer to rise at high altitudes – be patient!
– Increase baking temperature by 15 to 25 degrees F
– Decrease the amount of baking powder
– Decrease sugar by 1/4 cup

Linda kaldor says:

I like the newsletter idea. Plus the recipes as well. Here’s a suggestion. What about putting in some kind of dessert ( not a piece of fruit) in the boxes? I’m a sweet eater and I know millions of us are out there! Just a thought! Give us a few more selections to choose from if you don’t like the upcoming meals. Other than that you already do a great job!
