Eat more vegetables.
Theme: Try This Now
We're super excited to have beets in the bag this week. Literature fans out there may know that the beet is the most intense of vegetables, and they serve us well as BEET BURGERS. Seriously folks, you have to try this one. It's a new season, and this autumn we're gonna try something new. This recipe is our absolute favorite, and it doesn't include any crazy stuff: raisins, walnuts, lentils, rice, shredded beets, an onion, garlic and an egg. We know you've got paprika in the pantry, so try this one out! Let us know how it goes on Facebook! We love to see photos of the great stuff you make.

Canola Oil (8oz small or 16oz standard/family) Don't get this canola confused with the stuff in plastic bottles at the supermarket. This is cold, expeller pressed oil without any of the processing chemicals that you're used to. You'll love this oil for its light flavor in sautéing and salad dressings. Full Sun Company (non-GMO)

Spaghetti Squash When cooked, the flesh of spaghetti squash falls away into ribbons or strands, which makes a great a great substitute for pasta. The flesh can also be baked, boiled, steamed or microwaved, and the seeds can be roasted and eaten like pumpkin seeds. Barber Farm (OG) or Rexcroft Farm (IPM)

Bosc Pears (second one in from the left) With its long-curved stem and elegant, elongated neck, Bosc pears are often called the “aristocrat of pears". Bosc pears have a more firm, dense flesh than other pear varieties, making them ideal for baking, broiling or poaching. Kleinskill Fruit Farm (IPM) 
Storage: Few days in the pantry until ripe, then a few days in the fridge.

Red 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 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. Whistledown Farm (OG) 
Storage: A few weeks in the fridge.
