- Beets, Chioggia: The beets in your share this week are an Italian heirloom variety called Chioggia. They have striking red and white stripped flesh, and a more mild and slightly sweeter flavor than a red beet. Use them as you would any beet, but keep in mind the beautiful coloring will bleed when cooked.
- Carrots: Fall carrots sure are delicious! They also are more vulnerable to a soil pest called a Carrot Rust Fly, and you may notice some minor damage from these little guys near the tips of the carrots. Just cut off any blemished part and use the rest of these crisp, sweet fall carrots as usual.
- Winter Squash, Delicata: That’s right, winter squash season has returned. As the name indicates, Delicata squash have a more delicate and tender skin than most other winter squash, and as such you can cook and eat them without worrying about peeling if you prefer.
