Winter Squash How-To
Basic preparation of small to medium squash from Douds-Floyd Farm


Wash.  Cut in half.  Remove seeds and strings.  (Seeds can be roasted and eaten too.)  If desired, sprinkle cut side with salt.  Place squash in a baking dish.  Pour 1/2" water into dish.  Cover.  Bake at 400 degrees for 30-45 minutes...OR...Microwave on high for 10-15 minutes.


Fill the cavity with your choice of apples or applesauce, cranberries, pears, nuts, or raisins.  Sweeten with brown sugar, honey, or maple syrup.  Season with cinnamon, cloves, or nutmeg.  We also like bread stuffing inside the squash.
