Since this blog is based around using the ingredients in our Yellow Prairie Coop food boxes, what are in those boxes anyway?

Potatoes, carrots, onions, and a variety of squash are always present thanks to Dan’s cold storage, but what about the rest of it?   Cucumbers? Greens?  Scallions?  Striped eggplant?

chayoteWell, this past week we all got a lot of chayote.  Pronounced “Ch-eye-oh-tay”, I think.  But other than impressing your friends with your cool new pronunciation of a groovy word, what in the world do you do with it?

This week, we will be learning what to do with chayote squash and, in a surprising twist? We are going to make a faux apple pie that is lower carb and super delicious!
