CSA Pickup Reminder Thursday Nov 7 Cdale and Friday Nov 8 Marion

Posted 11/8/2017 7:36am by Jill Rendleman.

Members will enjoy butternut squash and fresh local sustainably grown ginger from friends and local farmers, River to River farm in Tunnel Hill.  Be looking up those butternut squash soup recipes that include fresh ginger...wow, what a difference fresh ginger makes.   Fresh ginger doesn't have that brown dry skin as in the groceries....but a delicate pink yellow skin and mild flavor, you will love it, but you don't need much.  Also look for lettuce or greens!  

Ginger should be stored in your fridge in a paper bag, or you can also freeze it a plastic container or bag for use over the holidays.  Ginger is great in small slices added to warm tea and great for the stomach.  Some of us add it to our teas or waters all winter long.  The high price of ginger is due to it takes 11 months to grow it in Southern Illinois and a lot of care.   


Here is how we like to cook butternut.  Brush with olive oil, put butter in the center, salt and pepper, cook until knife goes in easily, but not so much it is mush...remember it will cook a little after you take it out.  Should be al dente!  Enjoy
