Much like autumn leaves bursting in brilliant shades of orange, scarlet and yellow, our gardens continue to grace us with colorful new produce, from rainbow-hued Swiss chard and orange cauliflower to vibrant persimmons. In addition to the color-rich selection of fruits and vegetables this week, you’ll also enjoy fresh raisin bread with Chai nut butter, dry-hopped apple cider and a black Italian rice fit for Halloween night.
Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:
Fennel Blossom Soup
This vibrant soup courtesy of The Splendid Table highlights the sweet, grassy flavors of fresh fennel.
Pumpkin & Pear Soup

Riso Nerone-Stuffed Peppers
