More in the saga of last harvests: here's what our wonderful butternut squash vines yielded for us this year, plus a couple that were given away. I'm told they need to spend some time in a sunny windowsill for a few days to "cure" the skin before putting them away in the cellar. Windowsills we've got, sunny they're not, but they've been duly distributed about the house and actually look rather festive in an organic autumnal sort of way.
This many squash will easily last us all winter. I love to make pureed squash with brown sugar and the usual spices. Do you have a favorite squash recipe? I'd love to hear it!
So now all that's left out there is parsley and oregano. And the parsley's going to have to come in soon.
