Heirloom Squash from Goode Acres
During the growing season, we get a majority of our produce from John Goode at Goode Acres. In the late winter and early spring he starts bringing us slicer tomatoes for our salads and BLTs. Then come the heirloom tomatoes, watermelons, cantaloupes, purple peppers, red peppers, green beans, purple peas, new potatoes. When he starts bringing in the winter squashes, we know it’s fall. Currently we have a Hubbard, White Moon, Cinderella, Galeux d’Eysines, Monster Buttercup, and plenty of Butternut. Lovely centerpieces that cook up beautifully. John suggested roasting hunks of squash wrapped in basil leaves with olive oil, salt and a little garlic. Yum! Here’s some interesting info and origin stories about the Blue Hubbard, and a tasty (if slightly labor intensive) sounding recipe for the Galeux d’Eysines. If you try it, make sure to let me know how it turns out!
