TWO IMPORTANT THINGS TO REMEMBER BEFORE LEAVING TO PICK UP YOUR SHARE(S)

Update-March 12, 2024

 

SIGN UP TODAY FOR THE 2024 CSA SEASON!

Updates Tuesday Oct. 3,2023

What’s in our shares this week?

Purple Hull peas (shell these). Bell peppers, Banana peppers, Summer squash, cucumbers, Sweet potatoes, Stripetti winter squash, Acorn and Butternut squash, tomatoes, and zucchini.

Can I store winter squash to use later in the season? We get asked this question often. Penn State extension service recommends the following:

Acorn squash  4-7 weeks at about 50-60 degree temps

Butternut squash  7 weeks at about 50-60 degree temps

Delicata and Spaghetti squash are better held over no more than about 45 days for maximum flavor—in our opinion. Stripetti squash storage is similar to Delicata.

Stripetti squash is  packed with fiber, vitamin A, potassium, folate, and vitamin C. This is a great substitute for regular spaghetti as it is loaded with an abundance of nutrients and is a whole food compared to processed spaghetti.
Below is one of many ways to use it-this squash is quite similar to Delicata squash. Let us know what you think about this variety of winter squash. You may prefer using butter, honey or maple syrup instead of the suggested recipe below. Savory or sweet, it’s good either way. 

Ingredients:
1- 2 lb Stripetti  squash (can use spaghetti squash)
Drizzle of extra virgin olive oil (evoo), maybe 1-2 T
1/4 t sea salt

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 425F. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Cut spaghetti squash in half. Keep the seeds inside. (This helps keep it moist while cooking). Drizzle olive oil, sprinkle sea salt and pepper on cut side of squash. Then put the cut side down on the parchment paper. Drizzle a tiny bit of olive oil on the outside of each squash to prevent it from burning. Rub it all over the outside with your hands.
3. Roast for 45 minutes to an hour or until the inside is completely soft and edges are slightly caramelized. Fork should pierce squash in and out easily
4. To serve: Scoop out the seeds. Add a drizzle of evoo and a sprinkle of sea salt. Then scrape out the squash and place on serving dishes. Enjoy!
