Bountiful Baskets – 11/12/2011

13 Nov

Things are settling down with our move, so hopefully this week I will be able to make more with my basket.  This week I got the conventional basket, 5 loaves of organic 9 grain bread, and 2 wagon wheels of dinner rolls, 36 white and 36 wheat.


We of course had to try the rolls before getting a picture.  They are delicious!  So, we have oro blanco grapefruit, fuyu pomegranates, tangerines, kiwis, blackberries, apples, grapes, bananas, celery, russet potatoes, yellow squash, sweet potatoes, and yellow onions.

I used an onion in a recipe tonight for Bierocks, that I will share shortly.  The celery I am going to dice and blanch, then freeze to have for bread dressing for Thanksgiving.  The russet potatoes will probably be used for mashed potatoes.  The sweet potatoes, well, I still have sweet potatoes from a few weeks back, so I have a lot to work with now!  I think I will be making a sweet potato pie, my husband’s favorite, not sure what else yet.


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