Co-op Goodies  

Posted by Emily in

I recently decided to join a local co-op that I found online in order to save some cash on fresh produce. Every pair of baskets (one basket of fruit, one basket of vegetables) is $15.00. I'm so excited because the produce has been great quality so far and there is so much of it.

Cantaloupe, peaches, plums, oranges, grapes, limes:
Co-op Fruit
Broccoli, potatoes, beets, green beans, spinach, celery, lettuce, onions:
Co-op Veggies

They also have other offering that you can purchase separately. This week I bought two loaves of bread. the one on the left is a 16 oz 9-grain sandwich loaf. The other one is a 24 oz 9-grain artisan loaf. They sell these delicious loaves for $2 each!

They charge $1.50 to maintain their website, so including everything the total for all this bounty was $21.50- such a good deal!

I've never made anything with raw beets before, so I'll have to look up some recipes to get an idea of how I want to make them. Do you have any beet recipes you enjoy?
