FALL FOOD BOX - November 17th

In this blog post you are going to find the items coming up in your next fall food box. We try to be as accurate as possible but sometimes things change with our farmers crops and you may get a different variety of something listed here. 

Full Produce Box

Full Produce Shares will Receive a Minimum of 7 of the Following 9 Items:

Green Acorn Squash - Spray Free

Acorn Squash is from John Abrams Farms. It's mildly sweet with a light orange flesh. Cut into wedges and roast, you can top with chilli lime cilantro sauce. You can also eat the skin of acorn squash if you roast in moist heat. Try cutting it in half, removing the seeds and stuff with whatever you like - bake until it's done.

Try this Baked Acorn Squash with Brown Sugar - it's sweet and delicious! 

Frozen Manitoba Peas - Spray Free

Frozen Manitoba Peas are from Covenant Farms. Thaw them and use as you would regular peas. 

This is the perfect side for your dinner - Italian Peas Recipe. 

Red Kuri Squash - Spray Free

Red Kuri Squash is grown by Jeff at Wild Earth Farm. Store in the pantry, a cool basement or on the counter for a couple months or more. This bright orange teardrop-shaped squash also has a bright orange sweet flesh.

Who says you can't use squash in a salad? Try this Roasted Red Kuri Squash Salad. Even if you don't want to use all the ingredients you can get inspired to create your own. 

Kennebec Potatoes - Spray Free

Potatoes are from Wild Earth Farm.  They can be kept in a pantry, basement or any cool, dry and dark place. These bigger potatoes can be used for baked stuffed potatoes. These are great for steak fries, hash browns, shoestring potatoes, French fries, potato skins, chips, and Hasselback potatoes. Kennebec potatoes also maintain their shape when cooked, perfect for potato salads, curries, soups, and stews.

 

Onions - Spray Free

Onions are from Wild Earth Farms. Whole onions and shallots are best stored in a cool, dry, dark and well-ventilated room. Ideal places include the pantry, cellar, basement or garage. Peeled onions can be stored in the fridge for 10–14 days, while sliced or cut onions can be refrigerated for 7–10 days. 

Celery Root - Spray Free

Celery Root or Celeriac is from Wild Earth Farm. Store in the fridge crisper for 2 weeks or more. This is a root vegetable with a mild celery taste. It's not too flavourful so I would add some spices or seasoning to it. You need to peel or cut off the outer roots and then either chop up and roast or use in a pureed soup.

 

 

We have shown you how to use celery root as fries and as mashed potatoes (both great ways to eat this) and now we want to share a celery root soup recipe. 

Beefsteak Tomatoes - Spray Free

Tomatoes are from Greenland Gardens. Store on the counter or in the fridge for 1-2 weeks. They're nice large tomatoes, free from the blemishes that wind and rain induce. Perfect to slice for toasted tomato sandwiches, burgers, or veggie pizza. Dice up to add to a chili or stew, or make tomato basil bruschetta. 

Microgreens - Spray Free

Microgreens are from Sweet Prairie Greens. These Pea Shoots are sweet, crisp, crunchy, and taste delicious, like young snow peas. Put them in everything and garnish your pizza, pasta, salads, soups with them. 

You can actually cook with micro greens instead of just a garnish. Try this Stir Fried Pea Shoots with Garlic. 

Carrots - Organic

Organic Carrots are from Oak Valley 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.
