Winter Squash brings the warmth of the Fall season onto our plates. Rich in cancer fighting nutrients, their versatility in the kitchen is legendary, from soup to….scones!
In season: Many types of winter squash can be found year-round, but they are best from late fall through winter.
How to buy: Usually, the smaller the squash the better. Choose those that are heavy for their size, with smooth tight skin.
Storage: Keep in a cool, dry place for up to a month or more. Winter squash is named as such because many varieties can be stored through the entire winter.
