New Product Spotlight: Honeynut Squash & Farro
Sweeter than butternut squash, honeynut squash is a great source of vitamin A and beta-carotene, which are important antioxidants and aid with visual functions. 👀
Honeynut squash can be cut in half, seeded, seasoned to your liking, and then roasted cut-side down at 425℉ for about 25 to 30 minutes for an easy addition to any meal!
Farro is an ancient grain that has a nutty flavor and chewy texture that is an excellent source of fiber, iron, protein, and magnesium which help with heart and brain health! 🫀🧠
To cook, follow a 3 to 1 ratio of water to farro. Bring water to a boil, add the farro, and then reduce the heat and simmer until the farro is tender (ranges from 15 to 40 minutes). Farro can be kept in the fridge for about 5 days or frozen to last for longer. It can easily be paired with a dressing, roasted veggies, and a protein or to bowls or salads for a preppable lunch.

Bring Your Compost to Anabel’s!
Composting is a great way to give back to the soil and divert food waste which can produce methane when thrown away. Please check out Cornell Compost Club for more information or to get involved!
