Patty Pan Squash

It’s not a new addition to our farm, but if you’ve never seen it before it would probably lead you to ask, ‘what IS that?’

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Patty Pan squash, also called scallopini, or button squash, is an adorable member of the summer squash family. We grow a light green variety (pictured above) as well as bright yellow and deep green varieties.

It’s used in all the same ways as other summer squash. The smaller ones are a visually interesting addition the your plate steamed whole, and they’re fabulous grilled.

So if you find a bunch of these little beauties in you basket have fun with them!

 

 

Fennel

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Each year I plant a few fennel bulbs. Fennel hails from the sandy shores of the Mediterranean and is widely used in their cuisine.  You may recognize the taste from Italian sausages and meatballs. It’s not a mainstream favorite here, but it’s licorice-y flavor adds some interest to your summer menu.

Customer, friend, and excellent cook Judy recommends this recipe: Provencal pork stew _with fennel_ to get you started with fennel.
