  1. 1. Either phrasing works fine -- just delete any hyphens. They're not needed here.

    2. Sauerkraut, asparagus, spinach, persimmon, kiwifruit -- only "persimmon" would have an added -s to make it plural. All others have no separate plural form.

    yogurt - American spelling

    carton of milk - yes

    half a dozen eggs (a carton of eggs would mean a dozen or sometimes 18)

    a bag of frozen peas (no need for "deep")

    All others here and in #3 are correct.

    4. Yes, that's fine.
