Pattypan Squash

patty-pan-squashFrom: Farm at Miller’s Crossing (Certified Organic in Hudson, NY)

The name “pattypan” sounds a bit silly for this variety of summer squash. Its French name, pâtisson, derived from a Provençal word for a cake made in a scalloped mold. They’re an ancient variety of summer squash that’s been grown for centuries here in the northeast. We can thank Native Americans for cultivating such a delicious heirloom over hundreds of years.

    1. Hi Marilyn! We sent you an email that contained the following: we understand your frustration. When we send out our In the Bag newsletter every Friday afternoon around 3pm, it has links to your specific delivery day, letting you know what’s coming in the following week. You can also head to http://www.field-goods.com/in-the-bag to check it out. The Single Bag will almost always have one fewer item than the rest of our bags. You can also build your own order with anything you’d like, including the fennel. Or you can simply add fennel to the Single Bag. Please let me know if you have any other questions!
