Butternut Squash - Spray Free

Butternut Squash is from Wild Earth Farms in Dugald. Store on the counter, in the pantry, or anywhere that is cool and dry and it will last for 2-3 months. This is one of the most popular squash among our customers and for good reason! It has a sweet creamy orange flesh and a thin pale orange skin (must be peeled). It makes the best soup, but can also be used for a butternut squash mac and cheese, squash and kale lasagna and roasted in small cubes for a fall salad.

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.

Cylinder Beets - Spray Free

Cylinder Beets are from Wild Earth Farms. Its shape makes it great for pickling or slicing. The leaves of this beet are a little sweeter than most other beets and are very nice as salad greens. 

Have you always wanted to try Beet Chips? You really should! 

Local Apples - Spray Free

Apples are from Riverbend Orchards. All apples should be stored in a cool, humid place. In order to keep apples at their peak, avoid storing them in close proximity to strongly flavored foods such as onions.

Kale - Spray Free

Kale is from Jonathan Farms. Strip all the kale leaves off the stems and store in a large ziplock bag in the fridge. It lasts for at least 2 weeks! Kale is a tougher green, however one of the most nutritious - filled with fibre, folate, vitamin A and K. It's a nice salad green for a fall salad, or mix with other lettuce/greens that you have. Dice it up into fine pieces for an egg scramble or omelette with tomatoes and any other veggies you have.

 

Brussels Sprouts - Spray Free

Brussels Sprout Stalks are from Jonathan Farms. This is the way Brussels sprouts grow. These are very fresh and so simple to use. You just break them off their stem and cook as you normally would. You can eat the entire stem not just the sprouts and they will last longer than just your individual Brussels sprouts. 

This is such a cool way to make this brussels sprout stalk - Grilled Brussels Sprouts Bacon Weave. it looks like so much to make and even more fun to eat! 

Spinach - Spray Free

Spinach comes from Jonathan's Farm in St. Andrews. Store in a bag in the fridge for 1-2 weeks. You can also blend up extra spinach with water and freeze in ice cube trays. Fresh spinach is great for lots of salads where you can throw anything into it! I use it a lot for a nutrient kick in smoothies or layering into a sandwich. When you chop it up finely it doesn't have much flavour so you can add it to anything.
