Vegetables That Go The Distance

Since we're all voluntarily or not-so-voluntarily staying at home, we're food shopping less often. Because of where I live—Western Massachusetts, in the Berkshires—this is not a tremendous difficulty: I belong to a local CSA (community supported agriculture) farm, and in winter the vegetables we get are generally those that store well. That means a lot of roots vegetables, squashes, and so on. At a friend's suggestion, I'm gathering some recipes I have on the site that use such hearty items—perhaps it will give you some inspiration for eating differently as we muddle our way through the coming weeks and months.
