This week at City Commons we have a great and delicious share for you. Last night we had the season’s first frost and tonight is going to be even colder. I don’t know about you but I love this season. When it gets chilly, somehow I feel even warmer. I light fires, make soups and enjoy the company of my family and friends. This week’s box includes exciting items such as winter squash and heritage corn. This corn is a small variety but it packs a big punch! Try cutting it off the cob and caramelizing over high heat with butter. Sprinkle this on top of pureed winter squash soup, sprinkle scallions. Yummy!

Green tomatoes from Food Field and Iroquois Avenue Farm

Scallions from Iroquois Ave Farm
