Pie PumpkinPumpkin

From: Barber’s Farm (Organically Grown in Middleburgh, NY)

Pumpkins can be used interchangeably with many different winter squash varieties. Varieties that are best used for cooking are generally called sweet pumpkins or pie pumpkins. If you want a replacement for canned pumpkin, you can cook the pumpkin and puree it. Pumpkin puree is very easy to make. Simply cut pumpkin in half, remove seeds and pulp, cover with aluminum foil, then bake at 350° for an hour or so (until tender). Remove meat from shells and then puree in a blender. If you want to keep it for later, just pour into plastic bags and freeze for future use. More info

Collard Greenscollards

From: Markristo Farm (Certified Organic in Hillsdale, NY)

CauliflowerCauliflower

From: Hudson Valley Farm Hub (Organically Grown in Hurley, NY)

Cauliflower has an exceptional nutritional density, which means it contains substantial amounts of vitamins and minerals with very few calories. Mark Twain calls cauliflower “cabbage with a college education.” For a quick fix, sauté cauliflower florets and sliced garlic in olive oil until browned and tender. To boost the flavor, toss with raisins, pine nuts, crushed red pepper, and salt. More info
