May 29, 2021 Bremerton Washington Basket

Basket

Picture to the left is May 29, 2021, Bremerton, Washington Basket.

Approximately 50% Fruit, 50% Vegetables, and 100% Healthy, Fun, and Delicious!

This basket is where it all starts!  For 17 years people have been chipping in to get a bunch of produce at wholesale pricing by pooling funds with friends and neighbors from their community, and making a group purchase from a produce wholesaler, then meeting at a specific time/place to divide up the produce evenly and take their share home.

You know the best way to make sure you eat healthy food?  Of course you do…  Have healthy food in your home.  Totally not rocket science, but it works.  

Sometimes we all get in a rut when we shop, and buy the same few things repeatedly.  While this may help us be efficient, it can leave us without the full complement of nutrients that would benefit us.  Different fruits and veggies all bring different nutrients to the table, so it’s important to change it up and make sure you are getting a wide variety of fruits and veggies, and our classic basket is a fabulous way to do that!

Mexican Pack

Mexican Inspired Pack
We’re hoping for White Onions, Roma Tomato, Avocado, Green onion, Jalapeno Peppers, Lime, Tomatillo, Fresh Garlic, and Cilantro.

Mexican Food is so often about the sauces, and this pack reflects that. Here are some sauces you can make from this pack to top your tacos, fajitas, taco salads as dressing, or other Mexican inspired dishes!
- Garden Fresh Salsa
- Avocado Tomatillo Salsa
- Pico de Gallo
- Mexican Hot Sauce
- Jalapeno Cilantro Sauce (try it without the cucumbers for a more classic Mexican taste, although both ways are yummy!)

Garnishes are right up there with sauces in Mexican Cuisine.  I also serve chopped fresh Cilantro, Wedges of Lime, and Green or Red Onions minced to go on top of our Tacos!

Here are some Main & Side Dishes that this pack would work well for!
- Chicken Stew with Salsa Verde
- Tacos
Jalapeno Poppers

Asparagus

Blueberries

Approximately six 12 oz Containers

Don’t leave these sitting! No matter how you serve or preserve them, these little gems are delicious! They dehydrate well, jam up nicely, can star in an amazing pie, top yogurt and ice cream as is, or as blueberry syrup, and are great to snack on! We love to add them to pancakes, muffins, and scones. Personal Blueberry Pies are a fun treat to gift neighors, teachers, coaches … or me!



BiColor Corn Pictures

Corn

Approximately 48 Ears

Fantastic fresh (grill! steam! boil! salsa!), frozen, and bottled! Stock up to have sweet summer corn all winter. Check out our blog for corn recipes! Check out this article, for different ways to freeze corn!

Mango

Approximately 10 Count, Approximately 4 Kilograms

Mangoes are a great, fresh addition to salsas, smoothies, yogurt, granola! Make mango water, mango sorbet, or mango-mint limeade!

Here’s a great recipe kick up your chip, chicken, or fish game: Fresh Mango Salsa



Strawberries

Strawberries

Approximately 8 Lbs

Delicious fresh, in smoothies, frozen, jammed, syruped (is that a word?); dehydrate in fruit rolls; make fruit salad and fruit pizza; smother ice cream, yogurt, cereal, and shortcake; and our favorite: strawberry-topped gluten-free crepes! A favorite dish of my kids is Greek yogurt topped with strawberries and drizzled with raw honey.

Maple Syrup

Approximately 1/2 Gallon

This maple syrup is a delicious addition to your morning meals! We love the darker, richer, more intense flavor of this highly unprocessed, Grade B maple syrup for tabletop use, for cooking/baking, and sweetening all of the things!

A Bountiful Fact for You!

Do you ever wonder how you are able to get such screaming deals from Bountiful Baskets?

It’s because every single person who makes Bountiful Baskets happen from us (Tanya & Sally) to the people distributing produce at your local site are 100% volunteers!  

That means Bountiful Baskets is  a self serve experience by design, in order to give you savings. The website has everything you need to know to participate in the FAQ, Policies, and New Participant Information.

Participants often will tell friends and family about Bountiful Baskets, and then join the ranks of volunteers by showing them how to participate on a Monday or Tuesday. 

If you know people who would be blessed by Bountiful Baskets please pass the word, and give them a hand their first week!
