Produce CSA OCTOBER 1

For some reason it does not feel like it should be October yet.  I know, the weather is cool and the leaves are turning.  But on Saturday it was 30 degrees!!!  And we still have so much produce available! The farmers are still harvesting, and many areas have yet to receive a killing frost.  That's good news for our producers and your CSA shares! This week everyone gets a red kuri squash.  Rich, fragrant and moist, the red kuri is such a versatile squash.  You can cut him in half, stuff him with sausage meat and roast until tender, turn him into soup or pie, or cube him up and roast in an oven with olive oil, throw him in a stew or curry or tagine...oh the possibilities.   The best thing about the red kuri though, is the thin skin.  So tender that you can happily eat it along with the flesh.  Which of course makes preparing it a snap. Everyone this week also got a bunch of parsley root.  Parsley is a biannual plant (meaning it lives for 2 years then dies).  On the second year, it produces and edible root that is fabulous grated on salads, or added to soups and stews.  The tops are just flat leafed parsley that you can use as per usual.  Tired of parsley?  Just chop it up and freeze or dry it.  It will store in your freezer for almost a year, and dried for as long.  Then when you're making chicken noodle soup in January, you can grab some Manitoba parsley and remember summer.
