These snacking peppers are delicious!  You can eat them as a snack, no cutting, no cooking - GREAT! and very sweet, with not burping!

Jonagold apples are sweet and very good.  Enjoy all the apples - This is their season!

Apple Cider AGAIN!!! Yes.  Please remember that you can freeze cider.  Just pour off a bit at the top of the container and freeze the rest.  Think of how good it will be on a special evening during the winter! hot cider with cinnamon sticks!

The Delicata Winter Squash are shaped like a small football.  They are great cut in half, scope out the seeds and roasted.  Add you own seasons either sweet - honey and butter or savory garlic, salt and butter.

We LOVE eggplant.  I like to fry it.  That may not be the most popular method any more with all the health - consciousness - it is GREAT!  I peel the eggplant - slice it and soak it in salt water.  Then after about 20 minutes I drain it; dip in egg, coat it with flour and fry it in oil.  It is wonderful!  IF there are any left overs I will make  lasagna  and use the fried eggplant instead of the noodles.  My family really enjoys it!

I will be sending out an email about the Honey crisp special again.  We still have  LOTS of them.

Enjoy the Fall weather.  Have a great week!
