Fall Food Box Week 8 - November 30

With the snow its hard to believe its still fall, but luckily we can eat great fall vegetables with this week's Food Box! 

Spray Free Green Cabbage from Wild Earth Farms

Peppery when raw, and sweet when cooked cabbage is a great base for salads, boiled and served with meat, or pickled for the winter!

Organic Carrots from Blue Lagoon Organics
Store in the fridge crisper or a cool dry place for 3 weeks or more. For raw eating, peel cut up and store in a glass container of water in the fridge. They can be boiled, roasted or added to a slow cooker stew/roast.

 

Spray Free Pie Pumpkin from Wild Earth Farm
Also known as Pie Pumpkin, these pumpkins are sweeter than the larger common carving pumpkin. This makes them a perfect candidate for your favourite pumpkin dishes and they are also less stringy than craving pumpkins.

Organic Parsnips from Oak Valley Organics

Although often compared to the carrot, there are some key differences. First of all, they are noticeably starchier than their carrot cousins. They are sweeter, too, with a nuttier flavour. But like carrots, they are excellent any way - roasted, mashed, or sautéed, shaved into salads, simmered in stews, or, yes, folded into tender, sweet cakes. All that being said, they do pair excellently with carrots.

Spray-Free Kennebec Potato from Wild Earth Farms

Whether mashed, roasted, fried, or boiled, these local spray free potatoes are a must have on the side of your dishes! 

Spray-Free Red Onion from Wild Earth Farms

Red onions are on par with white onions and best used fresh, especially since the anthocyanins that produce their red color can turn blue-gray unless mixed with something acidic, like vinegar. Best to save them for sandwiches, salads, and pickles.

Spray Free Spaghetti Squash from Wild Earth Farm

One of the more common variants of squash, and for good reason! Its name is derived from the stringy goodness when cutting open one of these beauties. Try roasted, boiled, or fried! 

Organic Thyme from Blue Lagoon Organics

Thyme is a beautiful herb with both culinary and medicinal purposes. Enjoy its unique flavour which is somewhat earthy, minty, and lemony.
