Winter vegetables, esp squash, in crockpot?

The Dairy Queen Nov 9, 2007 06:33 AM

I have the happy problem of having an over-abundance of winter vegetables from our CSA. I've also dragged out my crockpot for the season. I'm wondering if anyone has any delicious recipes for winter veggies, particularly squash, in the crockpot.

Also, my storage bins are overflowing with:

carrots
potatoes
onions
celeriac
leeks
beets
turnips
cabbage
parsnip
rutabaga
kale
mustard greens

Thanks for your ideas!

    This isn't a crock pot method, but I used up a number of the root vegetables (celeraic, parsnips, carrots, rutabaga) in the CSA box by following a recent mashed veggie recipe published in CI. Basically you brown the root veggies in butter, allowing them to caramelize. Then you add rinsed peeled and quartered potatoes with a minuscule amount of chicken broth. Once the taters are done and the liquid is gone, you mash and add some half-half. My household loved it!
