Conventional Basket - In the conventional basket we focus our buying as follows: High Quality, Low Cost and As Local as Possible…

I want to share that for my family, I use the basket as a guide to make sure we are getting as much produce in our diets as we should. We started with one a week, and now we are getting a basket and a pack a week!  I have noticed that with all the healthy food being eaten there’s no room for unhealthy snacks!

This basket is our best valued item, as volunteers assemble it on-site. Remember, any participant can come volunteer and Bountiful Baskets wouldn’t happen without volunteers, so please take the time periodically to volunteer. Also, I have noticed that I am better about getting all the produce eaten from the week before when I am looking forward to volunteering and visiting with the friends I have made at my site. The social connections and fun on-site help keep me motivated to use up my produce so I can go back for more!

Organic Basket - Just as cool as the Conventional Basket but 100% USDA Certified Organic Produce! Also worth noting; if you are concerned with GMO produce USDA Certified Organic Produce is not to contain any GMO’s and there is oversight and audit built into the certification process. So if GMO’s concern you please go with this option.






Blueberries - 12 Twelve Ounce Dry Pint Clamshells - Product of Canada. Blueberries are so wonderful!  They are powerfully packed with vitamins and delicious on top of it!  They are great in jam, pancakes, waffles, and just to eat!  Our family goes through the entire case without doing anything but eating them!  If you want to freeze them put a cookie sheet in the freezer with them washed, and dried and spread single layer, then after they are frozen move them into zip lock baggies!  You can use frozen blueberries in lieu of ice cubes to add some fun to your drinks!




Mangoes - approx 8 Lbs – Product of Mexico. Mangoes are a great, fresh addition to salsas, smoothies, yogurt, and granola! We also love to dry them. We make mango strips, chunks, and fruit leather to keep us happy all winter long. A healthy and sweet snack!





Medium Baking Potatoes - Approx 20 pounds – Product of Idaho.. There are several ways to store potatoes for long-term storage:  use a root cellar, dehydrate, freeze, bottle. Root cellar: a dark, cool, dry place with a consistent temperature of 35-40 degrees and some ventilation. No fruits in there with the potatoes! To dehydrate: Wash, then slice or dice, blanch, and dehydrate. Peel only if desired (I never do!). To use, rehydrate and cook like you would raw potatoes. Freeze: make twice-baked potatoes, my sons’ *favorite* method! Make and freeze mashed potatoes, the second favorite method among the menfolk in my house. Or slice for fries, par-cook, and freeze for later. Bottling: potatoes must be pressure-canned, and having a shelf full of bottled potato is sure to make lunch and supper sides quick and easy! Hot hint: we take dehydrated potatoes and twice-baked potatoes camping. Makes for easy breakfasts and excellent supper sides (re)baked in the fire! Check out our blog posts on potatoes. Let us know your favorite way to preserve potatoes on our Facebook page!

Grill Pack - Hoping for: Hoping for Crimini Mushroom, Asparagus, Pineapple, Romaine Hearts, Yellow Squash, Zucchini, Bell Peppers. All of these items are awesome plain, marinated, or sauced on the grill! I’m looking forward to fajitas this weekend!





Pie Pack - Hoping for Key Limes, Strawberries, Blueberries, Granny Smith Apples, Lemons and Peaches. Whether you are making pies or eating these fruits plain and making some lemon or limeade you will be delighted!  My family likes cake, but they love pie! This pack lets me make everyone happy. Last year I made ramekin mini pies with the overflow as gifts for our summer activity coaches. They were a huge hit!


Summer Snack Pack -  Hoping for Pluots, Donut Peaches, Bananas, Grape Tomatoes, Valencia Oranges, Baby Carrots, and Celery Hearts. With kids home it can feel like it’s always either meal time or snack time!  This pack will be your no-cooking friend!  Just grab these delicious treats and go and you will be a happy camper.





Organic Coconut Oil with scent (less processed) - 1/2 gallon expeller pressed in a glass jar. Expeller pressed and organic, this delicious and healthy treat will thrill your family. Making popcorn with it is the BEST! One of my favorite wintertime uses for this coconut oil (besides stovetop popcorn!) is the care of chapped-chapped-chapped and cracked knuckles. Want to make your brownies extra special? Use Virgin Coconut Oil! The coconutty scent comes through and is delicious!




Bountiful Baskets Bread Items

With no artificial preservatives, critters want to eat this bread as much as we do! Refrigerate or freeze promptly. Bountiful Baskets breads freeze beautifully! If you’re going to use them within a month, you can simply pop the loves into the freezer. Leave the outer packaging as well for an additional layer of protection. If you want to store them longer term, wrap snuggly with a plastic grocery sack or plastic wrap. When ready to use, thaw on the counter, but remember to open the bag for the first few hours and turn it over frequently to allow any moisture to escape and keep the bread from getting soggy. You can also use frozen bread directly from the freezer for sandwiches and they’ll be thawed by lunch time.
