2018. Week 15! Plums and the first winter squash.
New this week:
Plums: Ruby Queen plums from Circle M Farm in Mannington. Ruby Queen plums are an excellent Japanese plum with dark red skin and firm red flesh. Yum!
Delicata squash: Delicata is a variety of winter squash. The elongated squash is off white to light yellow in color with horizontal dark green stripes. The interior of the squash has a creamy texture and a flavor similar to sweet potatoes. Like other winter squash Delicata can be stored for long periods of time, unlike other winter squash you can eat the skin. Fantastically rich and sweet.
