What is the deal with the traditional American holiday dish – Green Bean Casserole? Apparently in 1955, the Campbell Soup Company asked Dorcas Reilly (we did not make up her name) an employee in the home economics department “to create a quick and easy recipe around two things most Americans always had on had.”  No dummy, Dorcas decided that one of those two things was Campbell Soup’s Cream of Mushroom Soup and the other was green beans.  Pictured-- Dorcas with one huge green bean casserole.
Another new farmer  -- Altobelli Farm in Valatie, NY, which has been has been the home of the Altobelli Family Farm since 1956.   They farm 210 acres -- mainly corn and tomatoes -- using farming practices include minimum tillage, drip irrigation, cover cropping, and no chemical fertilizers or pesticides.

Beets  Martha has some good advice on how to cook beets and it ain't too fancy.  The Huffington Post did a good job on raw beet recipes stating what we have been spouting on about for years... if you think you hate beets you haven't tried them raw. 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. Juniper Hill (CO)

Butternut Squash The most common way to cook butternut squash is to roast it. Just cut it in half lengthwise, remove the seeds and stringy stuff in the middle, brush with oil, and place cut side down or cut side up or turn it once (depends upon who your are getting your advice from) on a baking sheet. Cook for about 30 minutes (depends on size of the squash) at 400 degrees until the squash is very soft and then scoop out the flesh and serve. Quite a few recipes suggest putting butter or maple syrup or brown sugar in the center before cooking. You can also roast the squash after you cut it up into cubes.  Barber Farm (OG)
