2. Perfect in lasagna or quesadillas. Many winter squashes have a deep yellow or almost “cheesy” color that blends well with cheese or in place of it. Its sweet and light flavors complement many of our family favorites.
3. Versatile flavors that shine in sweet or savory dishes. The winter squash is equally delicious roasted on the half shell with a dot of
butter, brown sugar and cinnamon or cut into wedges and tossed with olive oil, sea salt, cumin, and chili powder. There are limitless possibilities for new ways to enjoy the different varieties that our farmers are growing.
5. They take their time. Throughout the summer we are often held captive to our warm weather crops, sometimes scrambling to finish all the zucchini from our Box. Winter squashes like to take their time and are happy to sit decoratively on your counter until you are ready to enjoy them. They can be stored for weeks or even months in a cool dry spot but they never last that long around here!
