This squash is a winter squash so it has a hard skin. Sunshine is especially sweet with a much dryer pulp compared to other varieties we grow. (Our Buttercup winter squash has a texture that is a bit dryer.) The bright orange pulp is especially delicious roasted, and among our favorite varieties pureed for soups and pies. When we roast this squash, we leave the seeds and membranes in while baking, then scrape them out once the squash comes out of he oven. We feel the seeds add flavor! An easy “go to” side that works for almost all of our winter squash varieties is by either roasting or grilling them. This curry roasted squash, is easy and delicious, but you may only need olive oil, garlic salt and pepper for your seasoning because the squash is so flavorful. Squash pairs well with kale in this salad that is sure to satisfy your squash craving!
Sold each with each squash weighing a minimum of 2 – 3/4 pounds.
