A few weeks ago I cooked up two of the pumpkins from my CSA share. The picture here is not enhanced and if anything it downplays the vibrant color of this squash! The smell was wonderful when I cut it open and revealed the bright flesh.
The CSA boxes have been packed with various winter squashes these past few weeks and I love it! They look lovely on my table and they taste like autumn.
You can use almost any winter squash exactly like you would use pumpkin — use cooked, pureed squash in place of canned pumpkin in the usual recipes like pies and quick breads. Or add it to pancakes.
