First Farm Pick-Ups This Week and Recipes!

Hello all! Here at long last, the start of the Fall CSA season has officially arrived! Toronto members had their first pick-up on Thanksgiving Saturday, and the first farm pick-ups are this week (Tues Oct 13th and Sat Oct 17th). So, that means it's time for recipes as well! I hope some of you will scroll through the blog archives for some of last year's recipes too, but I will post a few new ones alongside each of this year's pick-ups also.

Starting things off for us is a pumpkin pie recipe - because who doesn't love starting with dessert?! Don't worry...the first and second course recipes will be up by the end of the week! See everyone at the farm soon!

PUMPKIN PIE FILLING
(from the Martha Stewart cookbook that my Mum has...which I realize is not very helpful as a reference...I'll look up the title the next time I'm at home...promise!)
2 c pumpkin or winter squash puree (cooked)
3 eggs, lightly beaten
½ c cream or milk
½ c brown sugar
½ tsp each allspice, ginger, cinnamon and salt

Puree everything together in a mixing bowl. Fills one 8” pie crust.
