Squash Season

Is a pumpkin just not enough anymore? Try adding a blue hubbard squash to your doorstep this year.

Blue hubbard squash can be used in place of sweet potatoes in any recipe, and also make a great soup once Halloween has passed. 

They have skins harder and thicker than a rhinoceros.  Whether your recipe came from Fine Dining or a Hee Haw rerun,  it may involve some undelicate preparatory steps ā€“ namely, sectioning the squash to fit in your oven.  You can break one open by placing it a large plastic bag and throwing it on the ground.

Go at it ā€“ and Happy Halloween!
