Veggies & Fruit for Sept 21

Welcome to another week! Here is what’s in the box! Be sure to check out some great recipes below!

Nicola or Purple Potatoes – The varieties will rotate depending on what you received last week.  Both varieties are waxy and great roasted or for potato salads.
Storage: In a cool, DARK place. Uses: Cooked. When to use: Within a week.

Butternut Squash – These butternuts are wonderful in soup or roasted in chunks.  Try one of this week’s recipes.
Storage: On the counter. Uses: Cooked. When to use: Within a week

Scallions – For salads, soups or grilled.  Just great flavor and crunch!
Storage: In an airtight (plastic) bag in the refrigerator. Uses: Raw/Cooked. When to use: Within a week.

Garlic – This hardneck variety is extremely special.  It’s the closest veg we have to “gold” on the farm because the seed is so expensive and we only grow a little bit.  Enjoy!  You can’t find this type in stores.
Storage: On the counter. Uses: Raw/Cooked. When to use: Within a month

Red Kale –  The very best kale variety for salads because the leaves are so tender.  Also wonderful gently steamed and dressed with olive oil, lemon juice, fresh raw garlic and salt to taste.
Storage: In an airtight (plastic) bag in the refrigerator. Uses: Raw/Cooked. When to use: Within 5 days

Parsley – Brighten up any soup or salad!  Freezes very well just as-is in a ziplock.  I pull out a bunch and roughly chop it before adding to soups all winter long.
Storage: In an airtight (plastic) bag in the refrigerator. Uses: Raw/Cooked. When to use: Within 5 days.

Red Tomatoes – This may be the last week for our red tomatoes so savor them!
Storage: On the counter. Uses: Raw/Cooked. When to use: Now!

Acorn Squash –  These winter squash are for eating! You can keep them on your counter for about a week as decoration — no longer than that!  They are not the storage variety, so they will deteriorate in quality after a little while. Don’t be afraid– they’re pretty easy to cut in half with a large, sharp knife once you remove the stem.  They are delicious roasted. Try it!
Storage: On the counter. Uses: Cooked. When to use: Within a week

FRUIT SHARE

Please be sure to remove the fruit from the bag immediately when you get them home.  They should ripen sitting out on a platter or on a dry dish cloth.
Please remember just one bag per fruit share member.

1 mixed bag of Cortland Apples, Bartlett & Seckel Pears
(for fruit share members ONLY)
