GFC Recommended Kitchen Essentials

We always want you to get the most out of your weekly share. Here are some of the fundamental items we have in our kitchens that make our food stay fresh and tasty. This is all of them but we think you will have them in yours. In coming weeks, we will be adding tips on what we do with these things. If you have other things to recommend as "Life savers for your share items", add them to our blog or post them on our facebook page.
