Week Six

Today's harvest is a bountiful one, featuring many new items! 

One of my favorite squash, Delicata is ready today. Hard squash are really the rockstars of the fall harvest, but Delicata are sweet and delectable year round. I have tried each of these recipes and they are all amazing! 

Also coming out of the ground today is the first round of BOCA papas... our beautiful heirloom potatoes. I used to not be the biggest potato fan (except French Fries, of course!) But eating potatoes fresh out of the ground was a revelation. Potatoes from the grocer have generally been in storage for months. The chemistry of the tubers changes in storage, especially in terms of the sugar content. Fresh potatoes are creamy, sweet and incredible in every way! I hope you enjoy them today. Here are a few lovely potato recipes:
