The Saturday before Thanksgiving, we picked up our Bountiful Basket food co-op baskets. This time around, we paid to contribute to the standard basket ($15), plus the Hostess Pack ($14). As usual, I was pleased with what I received and it does seem that we have continued to receive much more produce in value than what I would get if I bought everything at the grocery store.
There was a few duplicate items (things in the usual basket and then also in the hostess pack), but that didn’t bother us as it was all things we could use. One thing we did receive that I’ve never cooked with is parsnips. Not sure what to do with them? I guess I will need to look up some recipes for those.
Here is a list of everything we received this time around:
Green Leaf Lettuce (very large head)
Bell Peppers (2)
Red Skin Potatoes
Fresh Herbs: Thyme, Rosemary, and Sage
Russet Potatoes (10 lbs)
Carrots (1 lb)
Cranberries (12 oz bag)
