Butternut squash has a lush, sweet flavor that goes naturally with roasts and game. No harvest feast is complete without a steaming bowl of mashed butternut squash.
Butternut squash has a lush, sweet flavor that goes naturally with roasts and game. No harvest feast is complete without a steaming bowl of mashed butternut squash. We season it with a touch of nutmeg, an old New England trick. Roast and puree this versatile squash as a base for a comforting winter soup.
We strive to choose only organically grown or certified organic veggies and fruits from as close to home as possible. However, sometimes we are unable to find a local AND organic option, and in that event we may choose to offer a pesiticide-free local product from a farmer that uses integrated pest management on their crops. We target farms that put an emphasis on health, safety and the fair treatment of their employees, their animals and their farm. We have high standards, and so do our farms.
MORE FROM THIS FARMER
Store your fresh, uncut squash in a cool, dark place where sunlight won't hasten its ripening. Under the right storage conditions, your butternut squash should last 2 to 3 months.
If you cut up more than you need for today's recipe, you can store the unused portion in the fridge for at least four days. Just make sure it's covered, ideally in a close-fitting container or zippered plastic bag.
Cut butternut squash also can be frozen. Just spread it out on a cookie sheet, and flash freeze it. Transfer the squash to a freezer-safe container or plastic bag once it's frozen. This will prevent the squash cubes from sticking together, so it's easy to grab just what you need for a recipe. Be sure to label your squash with the contents and date, so you don't mistake it for something else. Frozen squash will keep indefinitely, but it is best if used within six months to a year.
