Fall Produce, How Do We Love Thee? Let Us Count the Ways…

First honeycrisp apples of the season

We’re officially in love with the fall produce that’s beginning to come in.  In the next few weeks, the co-op style produce shares will have  LOCAL butternut squash, red potatoes, sweet potatoes, acorn squash, beets and several other exciting items!    Stay tuned.  In the meantime, please indulge us while we swoon over a few of our favorites…

1) Butternut Squash.  

Every drop of sweat that goes into peeling, seeding, and chopping a butternut squash is worth it in our book.  This is simply a delicious, buttery, versatile fall vegetable with tons of great recipe ideas.  Check this post and our Pinterest board for a few of our favorite butternut squash recipes.

2) Honeycrisp Apples.

BEST.APPLE.EVER.  Enough said.

If you simply must cook them, perhaps try apple and fennel soup or apple chips.

3) Sweet Potatoes.

Sweet potato chips…sweet potato fries…sweet potato hash…baked sweet potatoes…sweet potato soup…sweet potato chili…sweet potato brownies…we’re starting to sound like Bubba from Forrest Gump.  You get the idea.  Get recipes on our Pinterest board or try one of these…

4) Beets.

We’re on a mission to make every UA member a beet believer.   Don’t throw the greens away, either – you can eat them too!  There are lots of beet recipes on our Pinterest board, here on, or below…
