What does Genesis 45:23 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Genesis 45:23

And to his father he sent after this [manner]
Or "according to" this F12; either in like manner, as he gave his brethren change of raiment so he sent the like to him, as Aben Ezra and Ben Melech interpret it, referring it to what goes before; or rather as Jarchi, according to this account or number, even which follows: namely, ten asses laden with the good things of Egypt:
the best things the land afforded; the Targum of Jonathan says with wine, but that Egypt did not abound with; and so Jarchi, out of the Talmud, observes, that it was old wine that was sent, such as is agreeable to ancient men: and ten she asses laden with corn;
not made up into bread, next mentioned, and so distinguished from it: and bread:
ready made and baked: and meat for his father by the way;
food and fruit of various sorts; Aben Ezra reckons many, peas, beans, lentils, millet, fetches, figs, currants, and dates.
