Notes from the GEOF farmhouse kitchen…
IN YOUR BOX…
Napa Cabbage – This is a great cabbage for salads. The leaves are tender, but they have a nice crunch to them. We’re supposed to have a stormy few days, so it’s perfect weather for making soup! I’m going to be making our family’s favorite Tuscan Kale & White Bean Soup with an Arugula Salad on the side. It’s nice to have some baby greens back in the shares- they love this cooler weather. The Butternut Squash will last on your counter or in a cool dry place for a while (maybe a few weeks to a month) but the Sweet Dumpling Squashshould be eaten immediately. It is not meant to be stored. Finally, the Nicola Potatoes have a wonderful waxy texture. They are excellent roasted in the oven with some herbs and olive oil. Be sure to store your potatoes in a cool, dark place away from any light!
Bon appetit! – Maggie
