Add some extra winter squash to your box. Please see below for descriptions of available varieties.
Winter Luxury Pumpkins are similar to sugar pie pumpkins. An orange rind is covered in delicate netting; flesh is smooth, sweet, and fiber-free. Amy Goldman, author of The Compleat Squash says: "Winter Luxury makes the smoothest and most velvety pumpkin pie I?ve ever had. When cut into a wedge on a plate, it holds its shape, color, and flavor long after the competition has keeled over and died.? Here is a recipe on it: http://blog.seedsavers.org/blog/winter-luxury-squash-pumpkin-pies-dream-come-true
Butternut Squash has a nutty flavor and is sweet like a pumpkin. When ripe, the flesh turns increasingly deep orange and becomes sweeter and richer. It has a long shelf life and is a great countertop kitchen staple.
Acorn Squash has a light, corn-like sweetness, so it takes on other flavors very well. Its large seed cavity is well suited for stuffing, so load it up with quinoa and seasonal veggies for a healthy main course.
Delicata Squash is loved for its ease of prep (edible skin means no peeling!) and corn-like sweetness, the Delicata is a fantastic early-season winter squash. Around for just 3-4 months of harvest and storage, this versatile winter squash is best when sliced into half moons and roasted to a browned perfection on either side. Drizzle with a reduced balsamic and add pomegranate seeds and a punch of arugula for some festive fall fare!
Spaghetti Squash is truly unique. Bake at 450 degrees for 40 minutes, scrape out the spaghetti-like flesh and toss with your favorite pasta sauce.
The North Georgia Candy Roaster is a delicious oddity that proves that looks aren't everything. It is a strain of Candy Roaster which is well known in the Southeast. Maintains its superior eating quality up to five months with proper storage. Delicious, smooth orange flesh is perfect baked, fried and makes great pies. Between 7 -10 lbs.
