Your weekly update on what's cookin' in your Field Goods bag. Overview of contents, plus recipe suggestions for your perusing pleasure. 
Theme: Consider the Acorn 
Acorn squash is a winter squash variety that is actually still related to your summer squash favorites. Indigenous to North and Central America, it was introduced to early settlers by American Indians! It is most commonly baked, but can also be microwaved (poke several holes in it). Great for stuffing with a rice and veggie medley, it lends itself to a beautiful and harvest-y looking table presentation. Don't forget about the seeds! You can toast those babies up for a delicious autumnal snack.  

A note on the cheese: This week we bring you another interesting Worldling's Pleasure cheese creation, made with apples, cranberries and Asiago cheese.

Acorn Squash To bake an Acorn Squash, cut it in half lengthwise, scoop out the center, place in baking dish with 1/2 inch of water, drop in some butter and brown sugar and/or maple syrup, then bake for an hour at 400 degrees. Hepworth Farm (CO)
 
Radicchio Radicchio is usually eaten grilled in olive oil or mixed into dishes such as risotto. Also great eaten raw in salads. Running Creek Farm (FAM)
 


 
Gold or Chiogga Beets Did you know that a cup of raw beets has only 58 calories? Beets are in the same family as chard and spinach. If you have a mandolin slicer, julienne the beets and toss with oil and lemon—beautiful and tasty. This web page has a nice summary of how to microwave, roast, sauté, and steam beets. Notice boiling was not mentioned—do not boil! Boiling sacrifices the quality and flavor of the beet and releases an unpleasant aroma. Juniper Hill Farm (CO)
Adirondack Red and Butterball Potatoes A beautiful medley from our Adirondack farmer Adam Hainer (pictured). Boil 'em, mash 'em, stick 'em in a stew, these attractive potatoes are delicious. The German Butterball is ideal for baking. Juniper Hill Farm (CO)
Savoy or Green Cabbage Try roasting thin, cut slices sprinkled with oil and red pepper. Savoy cabbage cooks much more quickly than other cabbages, so be careful to not over-cook it. Barber Farm (OG)
Red Bell Pepper A cup of sliced raw bell pepper, especially red, has 150% of your daily value Vitamin C. Talk about nutritious! Barber Farm (OG)

Stuff peppers with cooked barley, mushrooms, garlic, and herbs and roast in the oven. Sprinkle some cheese on top. 
Red Russian Kale Easy to cook and incredibly healthy. For a quick dish, cook kale for a minute in a pot of boiling water. Drain, squeeze out excess water, and sauté with olive oil and garlic for just a couple minutes. Remember to try kale chips if you haven't yet. Just strip the leaves off the stems, place in a plastic bag with a little oil and soy sauce mixture (by little we mean enough to lightly coat—worst thing you can do is add too much), shake the bag, and place in the oven at 280 degrees for 10-15 minutes.

Storage
  • Tip: Any item you would cook, you can also freeze.
  • Tip 2: A dull knife conspires against you and slows you down. A sharp knife makes your food taste better (and look better, too). NY Times
  • Pasta people! Keep it in the fridge 4-5 days or freeze it.
  • Any green needs to be as dry as possible, wrapped in a paper towel in a plastic bag and kept in the fridge crisper.
  • Don't refrigerate the acorn squash or potatoes. 
  • Radicchio, beets & cabbage should last a while.
  • Massage your kale for a few minutes before using. 

Key for growing methods:

  • IPM - Integrated Pest Management (methods used to reduce the use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers)
  • FAM - Family farm (farm often uses organic and IPM methods but may also use chemical fertilizers and pesticides. As a general rule small farms use far fewer chemicals than large industrialized operations).
  • Non-GMO - None of our products are GMO.
