Winter Sweet Squash



Availability: November-December (possibly longer if supplies last)

Storage tips: Winter Squash wants to be between 55-65 degrees. It stores best in a cool dry room in your house and should last at least into December and can last much longer depending on conditions.

How to eat: Basic winter squash preparation includes roasting. Heat oven to 350 degrees, cut squash in half, scoop out seeds and place face down on baking sheet or dish. Add ½ inch of water to the pan and roast for 45 minutes or until a fork pierces easily through the skin. We enjoy using winter squash in soups and Buttercups are especially good for stuffing.

How to preserve:  BEST= Frozen!  Roast your squash as above and then freeze the flesh.  It's just as good frozen as fresh.
