Whether you grow it or buy it, we want you to search out gorgeous organic produce and show us what you can do with it! Any type of recipe works, but be sure to take advantage of organic & in-season ingredients so your dish stands out. 

One Grand Prize Winner will receive a six piece Cangshan knife block set, a 13 inch Calphalon skillet, and an Instructables Prize Pack!
