We grow a variety of squash. One of the most popular squash is the acorn – green on the outside and yellow on the inside:
My personal favorite is the carnival squash. Not only is the outside pretty but the inside is extra smooth and sweet. I’m not going to lie – I do load on the butter and brown sugar.
Spaghetti squash is becoming increasingly popular as well. The inside is stringy – it’s interesting. We use spaghetti squash as a substitute for noodles in – you guessed it – spaghetti dishes and lasagna dishes – here’s a link to some different recipes.
