Bountiful Baskets – 10/29/2011

30 Oct

This week I ordered the conventional basket for $15 and a bushel of fuji apples for $24.

The conventional basket had celery, lettuce, cabbage, cucumbers, tomatoes, black seedless grapes, bananas, apples, strawberries, avocados, pomegranates, and kiwis.  The cabbage I will use to make a stew with potatoes, carrots, ground beef, and peas.  Still working on what to make with the rest.

A bushel is approximately 40 pounds, so it works out to about $.60/lb of apples.  There are 125 apples in the box, thank goodness I’m sharing them with some friends!   With my part, I will be making Apple Crisp and Applesauce.   Yum!

 

Note: The amount of food may vary from another basket because of volunteering and because of variances in how the ends of produce cases are distributed after everything has been distributed evenly.
