October 14 or 17 Extended Season Box

There is only 1 size box in the extended share.  This week is a lot of fresh foods.  The future 4 weeks will be fresh foods and storage items.
Box contents:  1 bliss pumpkin, 1 bunch of carrots, 1 head of frisee, 1 head of radicchio, 1 bunch of amethyst radishes, 1 bunch of kale, 1 bunch of baby bok choy, 1 pound of red onions, pears!

The pears are from a tree Aaron's Dad planted and it is loaded for the first time this year.  I'm not sure of the variety name but they are delicious.  They are hard pears that will keep well in cold storage but are ready to eat now too.
We put radicchio in the box so you could make one of our favorite salads.
Cut or tear the radicchio into 1 inch pieces.  Toast 1 to 2 cups of walnuts. Cut 1 to 2 pears into 1/2 inch chunks.  Crumble some or a lot of blue cheese.  Combine all and dress with a light drizzle of balsamic vinegar, extra virgin olive oil and salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.

The bliss pumpkin some of you will remember from last year.  They are great keepers, so you can enjoy it as a decoration until you're ready to eat it.  They have a rich, sweet flavor and dense, creamy flesh.  They make great soup.  We are in love with this squash!
