Featured Ingredient: Acorn Squash

Acorn squash is commonly referred to as a “winter squash.” Though it grows during the summer months, it will store well through the winter. Its bright yellow flesh makes it a festive addition to fall and winter dishes – it’s delicious when halved and baked with butter and maple syrup, or steamed. Acorn squash is also an outstanding source of fiber and vitamins C and B. Learn how to grow your own acorn squash.
