Like I mentioned in a previous post, before marriage and children I wasn't much of a cook and didn't really care too much about learning how to cook either. But now I care much more about what I am feeding my children so have taken cooking more seriously and am always looking for new recipes to try.
With the CSA we get to try quite a lot of "new" vegetables that I wouldn't normally buy at the supermarket or farmers market. Most of these vegetables come out during the end of summer and fall. Today I'm going to share with you some of these vegetables and the recipes I used for them.

Though some recipes weren't as well received, I was glad that my family and I got the chance to try some of these more unusual vegetables and broaden our horizons. There were a couple, like the leeks and fennel, that I would get in the future even if we are not part of the CSA anymore.
Here are links to all the recipes I mentioned above:
Sausage Stuffed Acorn Squash
Chili-Brown Sugar Delicata Squash With Pears
White Bean Fennel Soup
Potato Leek Soup
Have you tried any of these vegetables or any other more unusual vegetable before? Please share your experience and your recipe.
