5 Produce Items for 4th of July
I hope everyone has a wonderful 4th of July holiday! It’s always such a fun holiday to celebrate – fireworks, picnics, baseball, swimming, food… here are my Top 5 Produce Department Items for this year’s 4th of July celebrations!
These items are all available & in season now:
You cannot have a 4th of July party without watermelon! Headed to a lake or pool party? Toss a watermelon into the lake for a fun game of pass… they float!
#2 BLOOMIN’ BBQ ONIONS
I’m a huge fan of this new item from Peri & Sons Farms – think healthier, grilled version of the bloomin’ onion appetizer at your favorite steakhouse. Packaged up in a non-nonsense way with fool-proof instructions
#3 ROCKIT APPLES
New this season & fresh from the fields of New Zealand… Rockit is the perfect kid- or snack-sized apple. Super sweet & the packaging makes it perfect for throwing into your backpack, great for a road trip and we love to take them with us when we go boating!
Corn on the cob… it’s just so… American! You toss it on the grill, or even wrap it in foil & let it steam in a Crock Pot!
#5 NORTHWEST CHERRIES
It’s the Produce Mom Pick of the Week for a reason… because they taste so good. And the only thing that might be more fun than watching fireworks is spitting out the pits of cherries. It’s so hard to find watermelon with seeds nowadays… cherry pits are the new 4th of July spitting contest of choice 😉
…and I sorta lied, there’s another item you gotta get for 4th of July — BERRIES! The ultimate necessity for the flag cakes, trays & fruit kabobs.
I wish you all a very Happy 4th of July! I’m so PROUD to be an American! Happy Independence Day! Have fun fighting the crowds at the grocery store… remember to spend most of your time in the Produce Department & don’t forget to snag my “Top 5” for this holiday!
