Bountiful Baskets: June 8

Oh, was it ever nice to be back to do Bountiful Baskets again!

I only contributed for one basket this week, and I sure wish I had done two.  Oh, well.

Here's a not-so-great photo:


What is included:
  • 1 Butternut Squash
  • 1 head Romaine Lettuce
  • 1 Fennel
  • 5 beautiful Red Bell Peppers
  • 9 Chili Peppers
  • 6 Tomatoes
  • 6 huge bananas
  • 1 bag grapes
  • 1 box strawberries
  • 1 box blueberries
  • 17 plums
What are we doing with it all?

Fruit will just be eaten. 

I may make a small batch of salsa, probably using some tomatoes I froze a while back.

Otherwise, lettuce, bell peppers, and tomatoes are just staples that are used.

The squash will go with a meal this week.

Any remaining chilis will be chopped and frozen.

Fennel?  I don't have the first clue.  I'm googling to figure something out there.  I'm considering this Roasted Fennel with Lemon Stuffing recipe.  Or maybe this Creamy Fennel and Potato Soup?  I'm not sure...

All that colour is beautiful! So mouth-watering! Years ago my mom used to make a fennel potato soup and it was delicious. I should see if she still has that recipe.
