Give Acorn Squash a Try!

September 7 is designated Acorn squash day. So give it a try! It can be served as a main dish, a side, or even dessert.

Roast or steam for easy preparation. Then add it to pasta, puree into a soup, or stuff with your favorite meatloaf mix or apple mixture.

Save the seeds and toast them like pumpkin seeds for a snack.

The shells are useful as a serving bowl or soup bowl.

Acorn squash come in a variety of colors such as yellow, dark green, tan, and orange.
