Keep Your Broccoli Fresh
To keep Broccoli at its freshest stage, store it for 3 to 5 days in a plastic bag in the fridge. Broccoli can also be stored by freezing it. Peel the leaves from the stalk. Blanch the Broccoli in steam for 5 minutes. Cool, and then place the Broccoli in a sealed plastic bag. Broccoli can be stored in the freezer for up to 10 months.
Baked Acorn Squash
Simple in preparation, this recipe will make you look like a gourmet chef. Try it with your family, or take it to the next potluck.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
1 Acorn Squash
1 Tbsp. Butter
2 Tbsp. Brown Sugar
2 Teaspoons of Maple Syrup
Dash of Salt
HOW TO PREPARE:
1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
2. Using a strong chef's knife, and perhaps a rubber mallet to help, cut the acorn squash in half, lengthwise, from stem to end. Use a spoon to scoop out the seeds and stringy stuff in the center of each half. Score the insides of each half several times with a sharp knife. Place each half in a baking pan, cut side up. Add about a 1/4 inch of water to the bottom of the baking pan so that the skins don't burn and the squash doesn't get dried out.
3. Coat the inside of each half with 1/2 a Tbsp. of butter. Add a dash of salt if you are using unsalted butter. Add a Tbsp of brown sugar to the cavity of each half. Dribble on a teaspoon of maple syrup to each half.
4. Bake in the oven for 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes, until the squash is very soft and the tops are browned. Do not undercook. When finished, remove from oven and let cool a little before serving. Spoon any remaining buttery sugar sauce over and serve!
Silverbrook Gets Ready For Apple Peach Festival
Tasha Says, “As we prepare for the 2013 Acushnet Apple Peach Festival here is some information you might not have known. Johnny Appleseed was from Massachusetts and his real name was John Chapman from Leominster, MA. As the story goes, Johnny introduced apple trees to the states of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Illinois, West Virginal and Indiana. The last remaining tree planted by Appleseed is claimed to be in Nova, Ohio! Those must be some fine apples, but still prefer my bone! Woof!"
