Summer picnics are one of the best parts of summer, and Indian River citrus fruit can make every picnic special. Whether you're taking a sweetheart on a romantic picnic dinner or taking the kids on a lunch picnic to spend some time in the sunny outdoors make sure that you have a basket of Indian River citrus fruit on hand to take with you. Indian River citrus fruit is the most well known citrus fruit in the world because of the rich taste of the fruit. Since picnic foods are usually simple, easy to transport foods it's important that the foods are of high quality so that they taste great. No matter what type of picnic you're putting together here are some tips that will ensure it's a success:
Bring double duty equipment - It's important not to overpack when you're gathering picnic items. After all, you will be carrying everything so the less you have to carry the better. To avoid bringing more stuff than you need look for items that can do double duty. Cloth napkins can also be used to pack glassware or wash plates. Baby wipes can clean off a picnic table, pick up any spills, and make sure everyone has clean hands and faces after the meal. Use the lids of the plastic containers that hold the food as plates. Look for items that can be used for more than one purpose.
Keep the food simple - Indian River citrus fruits, like oranges and grapefruits, are the ideal picnic dessert because they are easy to transport, easy to eat, and don't make a mess. Other great picnic foods are sandwiches, popcorn, raw vegetables, crackers and hearty cheese, and any foods that can stand up to being outdoors and don't take a lot of effort to prepare. Remember that the foods may be sitting in the sun or warm weather for quite some time so don't bring foods like mayonnaise or cream based salad dressing unless you are carrying a cooler. For foods like cheese that you might want to keep cold look for individual cold packs that you can put into the plastic bags holding the cheese to keep the cheese firm.
Summer picnics are great occasions to make memories. Make sure all those memories are good ones by planning a meal of simple, delicious food including sweet Indian River citrus fruit for dessert.
