Garlic Dill Quark is wonderful on a roasted beet salad or dropped onto a potato and egg hash at the very end of cooking.  I know you got this pretty recently, but I also know it's a favorite and very easy to eat!  
The Aquilla is a jack style.  It's a good melter, but. I love it for cheese and crackers.  Make it a little fancy by serving with red onion fridge pickles.  Great snack!  

Recipes.  

Quick Pickled Onions

Roasted Hakurei Turnips with Israeli Couscous Salad - Make this yummy salad if you don't eat the turnips sliced, raw, and dipped in the quark.  

 

On the Farm

The colors are so beautiful out here and we have been enjoying cooler mornings and chilly fingers.  The Sunshine has been so nice, too.  The cooler weather means less weeds and has freed up a little time for us to take a step back and look up and out and enjoy the beauty of the area around us (finally!). We went on a nice family hike at a local park and had a fun birthday party for Otto who is now 7!  We hope you are enjoying the storage veggies and the weather and colors!

Red peppers

Cilantro
Arugula
Spinach
Onions
Garlic
Carrots
Potatoes
Winter Squash - Acorn and Black Futsu
Brussels sprouts

Notes on the box.

Store Onions, Garlic, Winter Squash, and Potatoes out of the fridge.  Keep potatoes out of the light to avoid greening and sprouting.  
Everything else can go in the fridge.  Greens will keep longer in an open plastic bag in the crisper.

Feta goes well with the Spinach, Arugula, Beets, Red Peppers, and Winter Squash.  Actually it goes pretty well with just about anything!  Enjoy!  
The Deneb is nice and creamy, fruity, and milky. It's also an excellent melter and pretty mild.  Nice to top casseroles and on grilled cheeses.   

Recipes.

Fried Cauliflower Rice

Htipiti - Roasted Red Pepper and Feta Dip

Basic Cauliflower Fritters

Muhammara - Red Pepper and Walnut Spread

Warm Arugula and White Bean Salad

We got that frost!  That means the greens are sweeter and more yummy than ever.  It also means the pepper plants are done for.  We will keep sending the brassicas and greens your way.  We are waiting on the Romaesco and hope it heads up in time for the last box.  In the mean time, enjoy the other delicious veggies! Especially the healthy helping of Brussels sprouts!
