If the only squash you have ever eaten is the standard dark green acorn, you are missing a whole world of flavorful treats. We made a point, a year or two ago, to try as many different kinds as we could - it's amazing how many there are, and how different they are.
As a boat food, they are perfect. They keep forever, and are easily cooked, either:
- in the microwave
- turned over in a shallow pan of water in the oven
- or simply baked, dry
So visit a farmer's market near you and get some. But live on the wild side - skip the acorn variety and try something new, something exotic!
You won't be disappointed.
