Veggie Tips

Oranges: Please refrigerate your oranges.

Butternut Squash: We are coming to the end of our winter squash —  one of the few crops that we store, it was harvested a few months ago.  Butternut is tremendously versatile and packs a lot of nutrition.  It is the squash that is used by bakers for pumpkin pie.  It makes great soup.  It can be roasted.  Cook it, then cut it up for adding to a stir fry.  If you don’t want to use all of it at once, you can either just cut off what you need and put the rest in the refrigerator in a plastic bag, or cook it all and store it in the refrigerator, cooked.

Rutabagas: Delicious added to mashed potatoes.  Rutabagas and potatoes together also made a wonderfully silky textured and delicious soup.  Or they can be chopped up and roasted with your butternut squash.
