What's in the box?
Autumn Crown Winter Squash
Same as above, but no Autumn Crown
Notes on the box...
Greens are back! They taste great again after the cooler temps. We will continue including various greens in the last boxes.
Napa Cabbage was planted on a whim and is a new item for us to put in the box. We are really happy that we planted it, because it looks and tastes amazing! It's great in stir-fries and soups. If you still have any radish and are feeling ambitious, you can make kimchi! Yum!
Store your Pie Pumpkin and Autumn Crown Winter Squash outside of the fridge. Both are edible and delicious! Pie Pumpkins are great halved, seeds scooped out, and roasted at 350- 400, cut side down in a pan with a little water and some oil. Roast until a fork easily pierces through the skin and into the flesh. Then cool, scoop out the flesh, and use for sauces, breads, pie, etc. Try it blended with a little oil and fried sage over pasta or quinoa or used as a pizza sauce for a savory treat.
If there is too much fresh sage for you, hang it someplace dry and dark for a while. It will dry out and you can crush it and save it to use as a dried herb. It compliments winter squash and potatoes very well, though!
