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.

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
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.
