There's no doubt about it, the Boston Organics Community sure ate well in 2016. Our farm partners and other suppliers kept us in fresh fruits and vegetables all year long, and it was a joy to see the shift from citrus and root crops in the winter to tomatoes and stone fruit in the summer, and to enjoy all the delicious produce in between.
To start 2017 off on the right foot, we decided to share our top-clicked recipes of the past year, to offer the opportunity to reprise tasty favorites or to find new inspiration for the year ahead.

Relish the beauty of October in New England with local fruit and vegetables delivered to your door.
Tonight is the first debate between presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. This much-anticipated face-off and the hotly contested primaries have dominated the news and conversation for months. Here at Boston Organics, we’re counteracting the stress, tension and noise of the election the best way we know how—cooking with fresh, organic ingredients. A side benefit of this method of coping is that it leaves the Boston Organics Community well-nourished and ready to be engaged citizens, whether by simply voting or getting involved in the campaign for a specific candidate or ballot question.

This event marks the beginning of fall, and the ever-decreasing daylight as we head toward the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year. The balance of light and dark at the equinox got us thinking about other opposing pairs. Read on to see how we're bringing together all sorts of opposites in the kitchen using produce from this week's boxes.
