FALL FOOD BOX - October 27th

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:

Candy Cane Beets - Spray Free

Candy Cane Beets are from Wild Earth Farms. These served raw make a great addition to fresh salads. Just like regular red or yellow beets, they can also be boiled, steamed, roasted, sautéed and pickled. Remember not to skip the tasty greens—you can eat them too.

This is an easy way to cook these beets. Try this crock pot cranberry & candy cane beets recipe - perfect for this time of year! 

Green Cabbage - Spray Free

Cabbage is from Wild Earth Farms. You can put the cabbage in a plastic bag to help retain moisture but it isn't totally necessary. If you use only a partial head, make sure to tightly wrap the remainder and put into the fridge.

If you want to really enjoy the leaves of this cabbage try this simply, delicious butter-braised cabbage recipe. 

Organic Carrots - Organic

Organic Carrots are from Oak Valley. 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.

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.

This roasted butternut squash recipe has a really cool presentation to it and they use cajun seasoning. 

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. 

Brussels Sprout Stalk - 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. 

We really like this idea of roasting the entire stalk on a cooking sheet! Then everyone at the table can tear off their own Brussels sprout. Try this roasted spicy garlic brussels sprout. If you don't like it spicy leave out the cayenne pepper. 

Head Lettuce - Spray Free

Head lettuce is from Jonathan Farms. It's enjoyed for its mild flavor and crispness. It's a delicious addition to salads and perfect for lettuce wraps. Store lettuce in the refrigerator's crisper wrapped in a damp paper towel and sealed in a bag. The leaves will absorb moisture from the towel and you can replace it if the leaves become soggy. Iceberg lettuce should keep for four to five days before it begins to wilt.

Potatoes - Spray Free 

Potatoes are from Jonathan Farms. These potatoes are so versatile you can roast, boil or bake them. Store your potatoes in a cool, dry place - do not store them with apples or other fruit as it will cause them to sprout.

4 words: Cheesy, Garlic Butter Potatoes! 

Celeriac - 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.
