Vendor Highlights

There are so many kinds of squash at the market these days! There is nothing better on a cold day than some roasted squash with just salt and pepper! Here are some other ways to add MFM squash into your menu:

> Butternut’s rich orange flesh is delicious in  soups, risotto, gnocchi and ravioli.

> Kabocha is extra sweet, dense, and nutty. It is good roasted or in pies.

> If you are avoiding gluten, spaghetti squash is pretty dang wonderful with tomato sauce and parm.

> Acorn squash has a milder flavor. Bake it and scoop out the seeds. Add just a bit of butter, then crumble some feta over all. Crack some black pepper on top and serve with a leafy green salad for an light but warming autumn supper.

> Sugar Pumpkins are perfect for pies, but they are also wonderful roasted or in soups.

> Delicata is soft, creamy, and cooks more quickly than other squashes. You can eat the skin!

> Blue Hubbard is large, blue-gray, and lumpy. But inside is beautiful orange flesh that is sweet and rich and perfect in pies.
