Recipes and tips for using the Bountiful Baskets 6-4-16 Distribution and in-season produce.
Tap, tap, tap!! Hello, hello!! Is anybody out there? It’s been a while since I’ve posted. The past couple months were caraaazzzzy busy with The Teens’ activities and work was pretty hectic as well. I always forget that May is off the charts with school activities. It’s best to buckle up and go with the flow. Now that school is out, I feel like I can breathe a little bit.
When I look at the goodies in my Bountiful Basket, it’s easy to see that summer is almost here. After a couple months of veggie-heavy baskets, the baskets are transitioning to abundant summer produce. I am happy to see more fruit – berries, mangoes, watermelon, all the fruits really. This week I contributed for a Conventional basket, Organic basket and a flat of blackberries. The blackberries are so delicious I ate an entire clamshell before I left the site (not sorry!). I’ll just consider it quality control.
You’ve got your Bountiful Basket home, cleaned all your goodies and now comes the fun part – deciding what to make with all the awesome produce. If you didn’t get a basket, you can still use these recipes with produce you purchased at the farmer’s market or grocery store – it’s all in season now, readily available and prices out very well.
