And just like that the 90 degree temps of last week are but a fading memory and it feels like FALL! The CSA share is representing fall with squash!
New this week:
Red October Pumpkin- A winter squash with thick skin and delicious flesh good for purees and pies. Have you ever cooked a pumpkin before, it really is not that difficult and the results are so delicious!
4 Easy steps to cooking a pumpkin:
Butternut squash- is a winter squash very similar to pumpkins. Butternut squash is wonderful roasted, pureed in soup, or mashed to mix into casseroles, bread, or muffins. Here is a link to my favorite butternut squash soup, Oh So Good! I tailor the recipe to suit me by -- only using butternut (no acorn squash, I like butternut flavor better) and I don't normally make the fancy toast to go with, crackers work in this house.
