In This Week’s Box: Delicata Squash, Celery, Hakurei Turnips, Cippolini Onions, Fennel, Carrots, Chard, and Spicy Salad Mix
Thank you for joining with us (or sticking with us) as we move into the hearty fare that winter in the Pacific Northwest has to offer. We’ve been experimenting with growing and storing through the winter for many years now and are so glad to keep our community and our families well stocked throughout the full circle of the year.
About the share this week:
-Delicata squash: Still sweet as can be. Don’t forget to roast the seeds if you have a chance.
-Potatoes, red and purple: Enjoy
-Celery: SO much more flavor than the stuff from California.
-Fennel: Thinly slice it into your salad, kids will eat it all up.
-Hakurei turnips: Any new members unfamiliar will be pleasantly surprised by these sweet and mild turnips, most commonly eaten raw in salads.
-Carrots: Best quality now, with a lot of fall rain and some cold weather they are so sweet and snappy.
-Italian chard: Also referred to as perpetual spinach
-Cippolini onions: What makes a cippolini different? It is a strong onion that has high sugars like a shallot does, so it caramelizes well, also holds its shape when roasted.
-Spicy salad mix
