Frozen Summer Squash

From: Hepworth Farms (Certified Organic in Milton, NY)

We like our summer squash soft and sweet. Melt butter in a pan, then add onions and cook until soft, about 4-5 minutes. Add squash, salt, pepper, and brown sugar. Stir, then cover and cook for about 20 minutes, until squash is very soft. Remove the cover to let the excess liquid cook off. More info

4 Comments on “In Your Bag: Week of April 6th”

  1. We got a stock-up delivery Tues. Will that be our home delivery date from now on? It used to be Thur. at Young’s Pharmacy.

  2. And to be clear, we don’t need a repeat of the stock-up order, which was huge. Just the standard bag and fruit of the week.

  3. Is Field Goods and Stock Up the same company? I had my Field Goods account on hold and instead of coming here went to Stock Up thinking it was the same but had to create a new account. I ordered there. The Family Bags are Field Goods right? Thank you so much for expanding this amazing business and access to food during this time.

  4. I’m also a little confused. Am I able to get my usual bag delivered to my home? Or is home delivery required to be at least $75. ?
