The Fall, Winter, and Spring months bring with them a bounty of hearty, nourishing food.  Finding new and creative ways to use veggies that are staples in these colder months is a rewarding challenge, and to help you in expanding your repertoire of recipes during these months, Heather Logan – chef extraordinaire at the Juicebox in Seattle and blogger at Kailyard Kitchen – has provided recipes and tips for us all.

Heather has cooked through several years’ worth of CSA boxes with us in the past, all along the way sharing warming recipes that utilize all of the unique qualities of the produce you receive.

She also has a plethora of helpful advice to offer.  During these off-season sessions, the seasonal produce is not as “accessible” as it is during the summer months – in other words, it often requires a bit more preparation to become a delicious and useful part of our meals.  Squash and root veggies need to be tackled before they are ready to include into recipes, and Heather shows us how to make that happen efficiently.
