What on earth is acorn squash and what do I do with it?”

What it is: Acorn squash look like giant, colorful, ridged acorns.  They have tough skin on the outside that can be some combination of dark green, yellow, and orange in color.  Once cooked, the yellow flesh on the inside becomes tender and edible.

How it tastes: Acorn squash is fairly sweet with a mild nutty flavor.

Health benefits: Acorn squash are extremely nutrient-dense.  They are a great source of vitamin C and contain vitamin A, fiber, and magnesium as well, making them beneficial for the immune system, digestion, and circulation.  Plus they help regulate blood sugar and cholesterol!

Storage tips: Whole acorn squash can last up to a month in a cool, dark storage area, 50 - 55 degrees, or about 2 weeks in the refrigerator.  Once cut, wrap raw pieces in plastic, refrigerate, and use within 4 days. Cooked acorn squash can be sealed and refrigerated for up to four days as well.

How to eat:   Acorn squash is most commonly baked or roasted, and often stuffed,  though you can steam or saute it too. See the recipes section for several variations on fixing acorn squash!
