Delicata Squash

Delicata squash are easily peeled with a vegetable peeler and cook quickly on the stove-top. For a simple fall side dish, braise sliced delicata in apple cider. The addition of fresh sage will lend a savory note to balance the squash’s natural sweetness. Or, try braising delicata with white wine and rosemary.

Pluots

Pluots are a cross between a plum and an apricot. They are sweet, juicy, and come in fun varieties like “Flavor Grenade” and “Dapple Dandy.” Ask us for a sample and discover your favorite variety.

Cipollini Onions

Cipollini onions boast a much higher sugar content than your average onion. To accentuate their natural sweetness, toss cipollinis with olive oil & herbs, then roast or caramelize them. Layered between slices of Gruyere cheese, cipollinis make an elegant accompaniment to steak. Or add cipollinis to your next pizza, quiche, or savory tart.

Figs

Fresh figs provide healthy doses of fiber, potassium, and calcium. Pop the whole fig (everything but the stem) in your mouth for a luscious fall experience. Or, add quartered figs to a salad of arugula, bleu cheese, and toasted walnuts.
