Winter Squash

January 5, 2017

Winter is here and that’s the perfect time for adding winter squash recipes to your family dinner table. Here is some info about winter squash varieties and a couple recipes too. We have Butternut, Acorn and Sweet Dumpling Squash available in our Farm Store so I’ll share some info on these varieties. Naturally low in fat and calories, the winter squash family delivers significant nutritional benefits. For example, one cup of baked butternut squash is rich in vitamins A (from beta carotene), B6, C, and E, as well as magnesium, potassium, and manganese. Flavors are generally mild-to-sweet, so squash won’t overwhelm other ingredients and can easily be incorporated into your seasonal cooking. The orange and yellow flesh helps brighten dishes—a definite bonus, especially in the colder months, when variety and color can be hard to come by in seasonal produce. And don’t be daunted by winter squash’s size, heft, and tough exterior; extra can be frozen in quart bags for use in recipes at a later date. Use some of these recipes to transform the flesh into something sweet or savory, and you’ll know that it’s well worth the effort! Stop by our farm and get some winter squash for your dinner today.
