How to Use Them – Oven Baked Ruta-fries

We are always looking for new ways to prepare some of the more ‘traditional’ BCfresh products.  Special thanks to our friend Deb for introducing us to this great recipe. 

A little bit of oil helps create crispy fries and help make this a healthy addition to your family’s dinner plate!

Rutabagas are a storage root veggie that’s are closely related to turnips although they tend to be a little bit sweeter.  We may call them Rutabagas in Canada and the US but in most other English-speaking areas they’re known as “swedes”.

Rutabagas are an excellent source of vitamin C, a very good source of fiber, and a good source of potassium, manganese, and thiamin.

BCfresh and our grower partners can confirm that onions packaged as Bestfresh Chefs Reserve 10lb Onions are not included in the recall as they are NOT SOURCED from Thomson International (Bakersfield, California).

Our Bestfresh 10lb Onion packaging is a black mesh bag with gold label with UPC 7-75058-50108-2 – they are Washington onions sourced from completely different grower/packer and are safe to consume. 

If you have lingering concerns regarding the safety of Bestfresh Chef’s Reserve 10lb onions, we recommend you dispose of the product or return to Costco for a full refund.
