Welcome to the Fall CSA with Pekarek’s Produce! We hope you enjoy the produce that we bring to you each week.
Your pie pumpkin, acorn squash and sweet potatoes should be stored on the counter (not in the refrigerator). The acorn squash will store for at least a month, but don’t forget you’ve got more veggies coming in two weeks. The pie pumpkins should be used in the next 2 or 3 weeks. You should be able to make 2 pies out of your pumpkin. You can store your Yukon Gold potatoes in the fridge or on the counter, depending on how soon you will be using them.
The rest of the produce can be stored in the refrigerator. Romanesco will likely be a new food to most of you. Its absolutely amazing and kind of cool looking. Eat it and cook it in the same way you would cauliflower. We usually eat it raw (maybe with some ranch dip) or roast it in the oven.
If you aren’t sure how to cook your acorn squash or any of the other foods in this week’s CSA box, be sure to visit the website at pekareksproduce.wordpress.com.
There are lots of veggies we are still picking for the fall, and Ryan is already gearing up for next year. He’s got the seed catalogues out and is making maps for where to put the vegetables in the spring.
