This week's Co-Op Basket


This week in addition to the regular produce basket from Bountiful Baskets I decided to get some of the add-ons options they had available. I got 20lbs of tomatoes (although the box says 25lbs) and the Mexican Produce pack.  I think I'm going to try and make salsa and can it for the first time!  That will be the challenge this week and I will post the results soon.  

I also got a whole coconut! I haven't had a whole fresh coconut since I was a little girl.  My kids wondered what it was and opening and eating it should be an adventure. 
There was also 16 beautiful apricots. I thought I would do a easy tart but with how quickly we are eating them they might not last long enough! 

I'm really enjoying getting to meet new people each week at the pick up, the fun of not knowing exactly what you will get in your basket and the challenge of cooking things I wouldn't normally purchase at the store.
