November 18th, 2009

I’ve been diving back into my dog-eared Joy of Cooking lately, giving these tried-and-true recipes little eco-twists along the way. For Thanksgiving this year, I’m bringing the apple pie, made from Joy’s simple recipe with a few tweaks.

Myra Goodman’s Pumpkin and Winter Squash Pie

November 18th, 2009

I look forward to seasonal food this time of year for many reasons, and the amazing flavor of winter squash is a big part of what I love about food in this season. I always choose organic winter squashes because they are grown in a way that protects the environment, but also because non-organic squashes are often treated with a petroleum-based fungicidal wax to extend shelf-life. These waxes are really difficult to remove and are absorbed into the squash’s otherwise delicious flesh — Myra Goodman
