A friend of mine found Bountiful Baskets Food Co-Op on Facebook a couple of weeks ago and we decided to give it a try. We figured for $15 a basket, it was worth the risk. We were very pleasantly surprised with our basket of fruits and veggies. We also split a case of apples that our family has enjoyed for the past two weeks (and will continue to enjoy the applesauce that is frozen). We went today to pick up our baskets and it was even nicer than last time! I had to take a picture of the goodies.
For $15 we each received squash, potatoes, sweet potatoes, onions, persimmons (had to google those!), bananas, apples, grapes, blackberries, celery, kiwi, and oroblanco (also had to google those!). Then Lisa added on tangerines (they are tiny so I told the kids they were Clementines and they have eaten 2 since I walked in the door an hour ago) and squash and there were so many in her add on that she shared with me so we now have about 40 Clemintines and three huge squash (butternut, acorn, and spaghetti). We tried their bread last week and I loved that but the kids didn't so I didn't get it this time. It is all so good and I love that it is making me try new things. Please feel free to share recipes with me for any/all of the above. I'm attempting to make my menu for the week and use all of this...it will be interesting :)
Check and see if there is a Bountiful Baskets Co-Op in your area - totally worth it, in my humble opinion.
