In keeping with the warm, soulful flavors of classic Oktoberfest, this week’s lineup stars such Bavarian favorites as smoky bratwurst links, wholegrain mustard and our housemade tangy sauerkraut. Complemented by an array of fresh fall produce like Delicata squash, purple carrots and Russian Banana fingerling potatoes to incorporate into comforting side dishes, this box also includes bread pudding accented with raisins and bourbon maple syrup to finish your supper on a sweet note.
Here are some recipe ideas for the week:
