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!
