Enjoy your favorite foods, but keep portion size in mind. A serving of this savory squash is 1/2 cup.
This large cylindrical winter squash looks rather like a giant pear in shape. The color ranges from pale yellow to light beige. The flesh is bright orange and sweet. It can be baked, steamed or simmered.
Cut the squash in half. Scoop out the seeds with a spoon. Use a vegetable peeler to remove the outer skin and then cut into cubes for use in skillets, stews or soups. Half of a small squash will yield about 2 cups cubed squash.
