Flatbush CSA- Pick Up #12- Brooklyn, NY

The butternut squash is from last week or the week before. Honestly I wasn’t sure of what it was until my friend Jacque called me from the grocery store letting me know. Google image search confirmed it. Any suggestions on what to do with it besides photograph it and look at it daily. Now it has a friend, the pumpkin.

    Great baked and served as a side dish. Makes a fantastic soup. See http://flatbushgardener.blogspot.com/2006/10/squash-and-pear-soup.html for one recipe.

    The butternut squash should be cut in half lengthwise and take out the seeds, leaving the meat, like you would a pumpkin. Place in a baking dish with the cut side up with a small amount of water in the bottom. Cover with foil and bake until
    the meat is soft. You can eat it right out of the shell with a little cinnamon sprinkled on it, or you can scoop it out and puree it to make a soup.
    Many people like butternut squash soup. I like to bake the acorn squash. They are very good too. You can also eat the pumpkin like this as well, or you can save the pumpkin meat in 1 cup servings in baggies in the freezer and add to pancakes or muffin recipes! Very Yummy! Happy cooking šŸ™‚
