This squash is a winter squash so it has a hard skin. Acorn is excellent baked with fruit in it, a family recipe tradition that we acquired from Carl’s mother. This squash is excellent as a main entree when stuffed with wild rice, with kale and sausage, or with tomatoes, peppers and corn. An easy “go to” side that works for almost all of our winter squash varieties is by either roasting or grilling them. This squash is tasty simply baked, and while many recipes suggest using sugar for basting the squash pulp, we feel winter squash is sweet enough that we normally baste with olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper.
Sold each with each squash weighing about 1 – 3/4 pounds.
