Honeycrisp Apples

Approx 100 count

 

Crisp, juicy, and sweet, these cause mayhem the moment they’re inside my door. Store in the refrigerator crisper drawer for a relatively long life; as with any produce, keep checking and pull those that start to look a little sad to maintain the quality of the rest. Serve with your favorite cow, sheep, and goat cheese for a deilcious and healthful snack!

LOCAL Colorado Butternut Squash
Approx 40 Lbs

 

A sweet, nutty-flavored squash that rocks our world! Roast it and then let your imagination run wild: mash, toast, puree or cube for soup or freeze for later. Butternut squash has a nice shelf life that will keep a delicious dinner side available no matter where in the basket cycle you are! Try roasting with garlic, dusted with cumin, and finished with a splash of red wine vinegar and fresh thyme. It will knock your socks off!

LOCAL Colorado Russet Potatoes
Approx 50 Lb

 

Mashed potatoes, baked potatoes, potato soup, potatoes in stews! How about make-ahead mashed, roasted, or twice-baked potatoes? Perfect to ease your holiday cooking!

 

There are several ways to store potatoes for long-term storage: use a root cellar, dehydrate, freeze, bottle. Root cellar: a dark, cool, dry place with a consistent temperature of 35-40 degrees and some ventilation. No fruits in there with the potatoes! To dehydrate: Wash, then slice or dice, blanch, and dehydrate. Peel only if desired (I never do!). To use, rehydrate and cook like you would raw potatoes. Freeze: make twice-baked potatoes, my sons’ *favorite* method! Make and freeze mashed potatoes, the second favorite method among the menfolk in my house. Or slice for fries, par-cook/roast, and freeze for later. Bottling: potatoes must be pressure-canned, and having a shelf full of bottled potato is sure to make lunch and supper sides quick and easy! Hot hint: we take dehydrated potatoes and twice-baked potatoes camping and stay-cationing. Makes for easy breakfasts and excellent supper sides (re)baked in the fire!
