One of the sweetest varieties of winter squash, its flesh is dark orange and tastes sweet and nutty when cooked. It is also a great source of Vitamins A & C, beta-carotene and fibre. Its skin is thin and edible, so can keep its skin on most recipes! It can also be cut up and frozen for later usage. Also, its seeds are a great snack food, just like pumpkin seeds. It’s a great substitute for butternut squash in most recipes!
