October 29th Weekly Example Box

FFCSA Offerings 10/29/2018 - Squash, Squash, And Some More Squash!

Dear Full Farm CSA Members,
Welcome to the first week that it's truly felt like Fall out here! We've had some changeups in our availabilities, and some of our late summer/early fall faves are done now. 
HOWEVER.
As you might have guessed from the subject line, we have quite a few new squash on offer! 
Red Kuri is a pumpkin's fraternal twin, with a bright orange exterior and a mild chestnutty flavored interior.
Green Kabocha tastes like a cross between a sweet potato and a pumpkin.
Blue Hubbard is a giant squash, also with a hint of nutty flavor. 
Buttercup is sweet and creamy, perfect for soups.
Spaghetti Squash is famous for it's noodle-like interior, and is an excellent gluten-free substitute for pasta! It can also be cooked al dente or soft just like with pasta -- for a firmer "noodle", roast the squash dry and interior-up with just some olive oil drizzled on top; for a softer texture, roast interior-down or even with a centimeter or so of water in the pan.
The Delicatas are not new this week - but now have a reduced price, so they're getting a shout out too! 
Last but definitely not least (drumroll please), we have Luxury Pie Pumpkins! These babies are perfect for all your pie baking needs, as well as candied pumpkin or pumpkin soup recipes. 
We also still have Jalapeno Cheddar Popcorn for snacking!
We are also happy to report that we have an increased range of our Pasture Raised and Nut Finished Heritage Pork this week! 
If you had been looking forward to our First Friday Farm dinner this week, we regret to announce that they have ended for the season. Our dining room isn't large enough to fit everyone, and it is too muddy to sit out under the apple trees now! 
Our featured recipe this week is Spaghetti Squash Bolognese, because I love spaghetti squash and might as well get this recipe recommendation out of my system right off the bat! This recipe calls for carrots, onion, and fresh basil, as well as ground beef - however, it's equally delicious if you want to change it up and use some of our pork sausages! Linguica, Lamb or Pork Garlic, and either our Hot or Sweet Italian sausages would also go extremely well in this dish. http://www.loveandrisotto.com/spaghetti-squash-bolognese/ 
Bon appétit!
