Specialty Produce Recipe Suggestions
Silky Butternut Squash Soup
Serves 8
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
One medium sweet yellow onion, finely chopped
One medium apple, finely chopped
1 teaspoon finely chopped thyme
6 to 7 cups butternut squash, peeled, and cut into 1-inch chunks (about 2 pounds)
8 cups of chicken broth
1/2 cup heavy cream
salt and pepper to taste
1. In a 5-quart saucepan, melt the butter, and saute the onion, apple and thyme for 3 minutes, to soften the onion.
2. Add the squash and toss to coat with the butter.
3. Add the broth, cover, and simmer for 30 to 45 minutes until the squash is tender. cook’s note: if you have a pressure cooker, cook at high pressure for 5 minutes, release the pressure naturally, and proceed.
4. Puree the soup with an immersion blender, and add the cream.
5. Taste for seasoning. Add salt and pepper.
Roasted Baby Golden Beets with Pomegranate Vinaigrette
Serves 4
One bunch baby golden beets
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with a silicone baking liner, parchment or foil To roast the beets, scrub them, cut off the tops and lay them on the baking sheet. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, for tiny beets, 25 to 35 for 1 1/2 to 2-inch beets, and 55 to 65 minutes for larger beets. Cool completely, and peel—it’s a lot easier to peel them after they are roasted.

Makes about 2 cups
1/2 cup Pomegranate juice
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
2 teaspoons sugar
1 medium shallot, finely chopped
1 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon salt
2 drops Tabasco

2. The dressing will keep refrigerated for up to 4 days.
