CSA Share for 2012 Week Fourteen

This week I created a new page for this blog titled Recipe Box.  Check it out here or via the link at the top for a list of previous posts containing full recipes using our farm veggies.

In our share this week:

  • kale
  • collards
  • arugula
  • green beans
  • green peppers
  • potatoes
  • onions
  • delicata squash
  • apples

Those delicata squash in our share this week are another sign of the cooler season that’s upon us, along with the red-tipped leaves I’ve been seeing lately.  I say “good riddance” to those sweltering summer days, and I’m sure this cooler weather makes working in the fields all day just a little easier on our farmers.  I love any type of winter squash (but HATED it as a kid…go figure), and last year I even tried a cookie recipe using winter squash.  I’ve found it for you over at The Golden Yolk blog.  A very interesting cookie recipe, indeed, since it calls for olive oil as well as squash.  It’s titled Butternut Cookies, but you can absolutely use any type of winter squash.

Don’t forget to save those squash seeds!  Just toss them in olive oil and salt, and bake at 400 degrees till crunchy.
