Next Week’s Bushel is Live! Black Beauty Eggplant and Sweet Potatoes

Learning to cook seasonally can be daunting. We know that the relief that comes from not having to brave the grocery store aisles or the crowded farmers market stalls is often outweighed by the slight panic you might feel when presented with a bushel overflowing with produce.

We brought the food to your door, we want to make sure it makes it into your belly. We’ve combed our brains and our favorite recipe indexes to bring you a list of ways to use your bushel throughout the week. Stick with us and you’ll be a master at seasonal cooking in no time.
