Squash, White Acorn (Flint Ridge Organic Produce)
Certified organic from Flint Ridge Organic Produce in Kalona. Also known as Pepper squash, White acorn squash is a winter variety that is known for its excellent storage capabilities (better than green acorn) and tender texture. White acorn squash is best suited for cooked applications such as roasting, broiling, grilling, and baking and is ideal for use in both sweet and savory preparations. Cooked squash can be pureed and added to soups, risotto, stews, curries, and baked goods such as cakes and pies. It can also be halved, stuffed, or roasted and served as a simple side dish. White acorn squash pairs well with citrus, apple, honey, maple syrup, cinnamon, chili powder, robust cheeses, fresh herbs, butter, bacon, brown or black rice, dried berries, and sausage. It will keep up to one month when stored, uncut, in a cool and dry place.
