Food Facts

This large cylindrical winter squash looks rather like a giant pear in shape. The color ranges from pale yellow to light beige. The flesh is bright orange and sweet. It can be baked, steamed or simmered.

Cooking Know-How

Cut the squash in half. Scoop out the seeds with a spoon. Use a vegetable peeler to remove the outer skin and then cut into cubes for use in skillets, stews or soups. Half of a small squash will yield about 2 cups cubed squash.
