We will be planting 2 different varieties of winter squash this year, Sugaretti and Avalon. I am told that once you go Sugaretti, you won't go back to any other spaghetti squash! If you haven't had spaghetti squash before, it's amazing. It is actually very versatile in its uses as a pasta replacement. Even my kids love it!
Avalon is a type of butternut squash. Butternut is also another winter squash that is easily made into many different types of recipes. It is very creamy with kind of a sweet taste to it. Our daughter loves frozen cut up mangoes. One day we tricked her my putting in a piece of butternut squash instead. She said it tasted like cantaloupe.
How To Store
Store in a cool, dry place, like a pantry if you intend to eat it within the week.
Spaghetti squash can store for 4 weeks and butternut for 6 months!! If you would like to keep some of these to eat during the off season...check out this website for tips on how to store winter squash over winter.
