Recipes to help make use of your 12-19-15 Bountiful Baskets Distribution.
The final Bountiful Baskets distribution of the year typically leaves me a little sad because I know it’s going to be 3-4 weeks before my next basket. That basket-less time seems like an eternity when I have to resort to purchasing overpriced produce at the grocery store. Costco helps fill the void, although the selection is limited. What can I say? I love my baskets! I contributed for a Conventional basket as well as a Hostess Pack this time. Hostess Packs are one of my favorite add-ons because they typically contain many of the extra produce items to help round out your holiday meal.
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.
