What is the gourd’s favorite sport? It’s squash! This time of year, fresh, locally grown produce starts to dwindle. It’s time to switch gears to fall fruits and vegetables. Winter squash is in its prime. Once harvested, if kept in a cool place, winter squash will last several months. This makes winter squash the perfect vegetable to add to your fall menu lineup!
Butternut squash is a type of winter squash and has a sweet, nutty taste. It’s comparable to pumpkin. Butternut squash grows on a vine and turns deep orange when ripe. As it ripens, it becomes sweeter and richer. You can use it like you would use a sweet potato, pumpkin, or even a carrot. Check out the top ten ways to enjoy butternut squash.
