    Frozen Summer Squash

    From: Hepworth Farms (Certified Organic in Milton, NY)
    We like our summer squash soft and sweet. Melt butter in a pan, then add onions and cook until soft, about 4-5 minutes. Add squash, salt, pepper, and brown sugar. Stir, then cover and cook for about 20 minutes, until squash is very soft. Remove the cover to let the excess liquid cook off. More info

    Frozen Kale

    From: Hepworth Farms (Certified Organic in Milton, NY)
    Not just for soup! Thaw in a big bowl of warm water (you can place this for a few minutes in the microwave), then drain and press using paper towels to remove excess moisture. After, try lightly steaming or sautéeing (with garlic, of course) and then chopping. The taste is mmm mmm good, and we still have some left in the freezer for unexpected company!

    Spinach

    From: Migliorelli Farm (Integrated Pest Management in Red Hook, NY)

    Spinach is best when eaten raw or lightly braised. To braise, toss with hot oil and garlic for a few minutes and then addof liquid. We like to add Parmesan cheese. If you choose to steam the spinach, wash and steam for just 5-10 minutes. This preparation method preserves nutrient content. More info
