Lemon Spaghetti Squash Bread

Ingredients

  • 1 1/3 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • zest from one lemon
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup spaghetti squash (roasted and then grated)

For the Lemon Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon milk

Instructions:

Grease and flour a 9×5″ bread pan. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large mixing bowl using a hand mixer, beat the eggs. Add the 1/2 cup of oil and 1 1/3 cups of sugar and mix until well blended.

Add 1/2 cup of applesauce, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, and lemon zest to the mixture and blend well.

Add the 2 cups of flour, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and 2 teaspoons of baking powder all at once. Blend on low speed just until everything is incorporated and most of the lumps are gone.

Add the one cup of grated spaghetti squash and fold in using a spoon.

Pour the batter into your prepared bread pan and bake for 40-45 minutes, until the top is golden brown.

Allow the bread to cool for at least 30 minutes in the pans. Then slide a knife or spatula around the edges to loosen and turn out onto a cutting board. Allow to cool completely.

Butternut Squash Bread Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
  • 1/2 teaspoon cloves, ground
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, ground
  • 1/2 teaspoon allspice, ground
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger, ground
  • 1 cup butternut squash puree*
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup walnuts or pecans (or your favorite nuts), chopped and toasted

Glaze

  • 1 TBS Honey & 1TBS Bourbon

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place oven rack in center of oven. Generously grease a 9×5-inch loaf pans. In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, allspice, and ginger; set aside.

In a large bowl, combine butternut squash puree, sugar, vegetable oil, eggs, and water until well blended. Add the flour mixture and stir until just blended. Lightly stir in the chopped nuts.

Pour batter into prepared loaf pan and bake 50 to 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. NOTE: Be sure and poke the toothpick already to the center of the loaf. A good check is to use an instant digital thermometer to test your bread. The internal temperature of the bread should be at 200 degrees F. when done.

Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack 10 minutes; remove from pan. Pour glaze on top. Cool completely before slicing.

Filberts 101 ~ In The Garden on KEZI

Watch Video Now!

EUGENE, Ore — Oregon’s state nut is the filbert, but what do you really know about filberts, also known as hazelnuts?

In this week’s ‘In The Garden,’ Caleb Johnson takes us in the classroom for “Filberts 101.”

“It’s a great tree. We have one of the best growing conditions for them. So there is lots of great Oregon farmers out there putting them in and selling them worldwide,” said Caleb Johnson, owner of Johnson Brothers Garden Market.

Johnson says filberts should be treated like a fruit tree.

“You want to prune them back in the fall, after you’ve done your harvest. You want to get your dormant sprays on them to prevent insects and disease. And then you need two filbert trees, unless you happen to live next to an orchard. What I mean is, you need two different varieties. They need to cross pollinate each other to get a decent amount of nuts,” added Johnson.

Johnson says it’s important for anyone growing filberts to make sure to not overfertilize them or add too much compost. Doing so can contribute to big green leaves, but not a lot of hazelnuts.

“When you do get your hazelnut harvest, don’t just crack them and eat them right out of the shell. They need to go through a drying process before you can eat them,” said Johnson.

Come and see our wonderful selection of plants! Johnson Brothers Garden Market is located at 91444 Coburg Road in Eugene.

KEZI In The Garden~ Fall Favorites!

Check out Caleb Johnson’s favorite plants!

Watch Now!

COBURG, Ore. – There are many plants that shine in the fall and they are some of Caleb Johnson’s favorites.

Paniculata Hydrangea, Nandina, Camellias, and Barberries are just a few plants that can be found at Johnson Brother’s Garden Market.

KEZI In The Garden ~ All About Fall!

Fall is here!

Watch Now!

Fall is here, and the gardening season is winding down, but there are things to do now to get ready for next spring.

“It’s a great time to plant trees, shrubs, beautiful annuals like astors, pansies, violas and mums. There’s so much color, and the conditions for planting is one of the best times of the year in the fall,” said Caleb Johnson, owner of Johnson Brothers Garden Market.

In addition to adding color to your yard, it’s still not too late to plant cold season vegetables like kale, lettuce and Brussels sprouts. Fall is also the right time to plant garlic and tulip bulbs that will emerge from the ground next spring.

Johnson also suggests thinning perennials.

“We can dig them up and divide them and give them more space for next year as well — so, a lot of good prep things you can do in the fall,” Johnson said.

Another item on the “to do” list — fertilize the lawn.

“Fertilize. Put some lime down to balance the pH to get rid of the moss — those pesky weeds as well — and get your lawn off to a much better start. Just do a little prep now,” Johnson said.
