Fall CSA Week 5

Posted 10/4/2017 7:39am by Christy and Chris Kantlehner.

Hi there everyone! 

I think we can pretty much agree that even with the temperatures climbing (just a bit) in the afternoons, fall is most definitely in the air! This week has been glorious. At the farmstand, we've got the tail end of summer splashed with our fall harvest - sweet peppers and tomatoes (and even watermelons!) mixed with pumpkins (very large pumpkins) and winter squash. It's perfection! 

And your CSA box this week is a representation of that! 

Here's what you've got: 

  • beets
  • sweet potatoes
  • delicata squash
  • garlic
  • sweet peppers
  • kohlrabi
  • herb choice (parsley, cilantro, or dill)
  • carrots
  • lettuce
  • handful of hot peppers

I'm so excited to share with you this recipe for Kale and Sausage Stuffed Delicata Squash because it's one of my favorites. Delicata squash is one of those squash varieties where eating the skin is encouraged (when cooked). You'll also need your garlic for this one and we've got kale and sausage at the farmstand if you need some, too! 

It's chili season for sure and the first thing I thought of when I saw all of those hot and sweet peppers! Grab your favorite chili recipe, add in some of the hot peppers, chopped, those sweet peppers and any lingering fresh tomatoes that you can find. Lately I've also been dicing up some squash and putting it in my crock pot of chili along with some quinoa and it's been the perfect addition!

sweet potatoes and garlic should be stored at room temperature - on your counter or in a basket somewhere.

Aptly named for this season, give this Autumn Slaw a try with that kohlrabi, carrots and beets. It's even got apples in it! A great side dish for a pork tenderloin this week. 

We hope you enjoy the share this week! 

Let us know what you're making!
