In Your Share This Week
Cabbage (Ruby Perfection): These are the same queenly cabbages we gave you two weeks ago, but a little smaller, so we are giving you two! We harvested them mid-August and they’ve been sleeping in a squash box together in our cooler. In the past few weeks we’ve done a big push to get more cabbage in from the field, so it’s in with the new, out with the older! If you’re not ready to eat them, these cabbages keep very well in a plastic bag in your vegetable drawer. They also stain your skin a nice dark purple, so keep that in mind for Halloween…
Squash (Butternut): I like these a lot because nearly the whole squash is edible…less seed scooping! Butternut pairs great with pears (hah) and apples, which are also in season right now (I recommend Apple Fest at the Portland Nursery, this weekend and the following!) I recently ate a butternut-pear soup with ginger cream drizzled on top of it (omg…winter squash season is just the best). Like delicata and acorn, keep them on your countertop or in a cool, dry cupboard, but you butternut forget about ’em!
