Cucurbitas: Winter Squash and Pumpkins

Cucurbitas: Winter Squash and Pumpkins

1 comment

One of the best things about fall and winter seasons is that we get to eat seasonal foods--root vegetables, winter squash and pumpkins, brassicas, cool-weather greens, apples, pears, pomegranates, persimmons, all sorts of nuts and more. Most of these foods store well, so we are able to enjoy them during the cold weather. I especially like winter squash and pumpkin; their bright orange and yellow flesh brightens our meals and nourishes us. Here are a few that I have grown, or are easy to get at your farmers' markets, local farm stands, organic markets and even the grocery store.

Sweet Potatoes and Apples

Sweet Potatoes and Apples

It's that time of year that we want to eat warming comfort foods. I try to use vegetables, fruits and nuts that are in season. This recipe features two of my favorites--sweet potatoes and apples--in a simple yet scrumptious dish. It is easily prepared in a crockpot, although it can be made in a dutch oven or covered casserole in the oven.

Have you planted your garlic yet?

Have you planted your garlic yet?

It's that time of year again... as the leaves begin to fall, it is time to think about getting your garlic bed ready to plant. It is so worthwhile to grow your own because there is such a vast array of types to choose from, which you just cannot get at the grocery store. I personally prefer hardnecks over softnecks, although I always grow some of each for their flavor and for storage.
