Squash, Honeynut (Aylmer, ON) - Each

Sold Out!

Honeynut squash is small in size, averaging 10-13 centimeters in length, and has the traditional bell shape of a butternut squash, only much smaller with a short, bulbous bottom and long neck. 

Honeynut squash was created from butternut and buttercup squash, two cultivars that have been shown to contain vitamin A, a nutrient to help maintain normal organ functioning, and vitamin C, an antioxidant that strengthens the immune system. The squashes also provide lower amounts of potassium, fiber, iron, and calcium.

Honeynut squash is best suited for cooked applications such as roasting, baking, boiling, and sautéing, and is a bit easier to prepare than butternut squash due to the smaller size. The recommended preparation for the sweet squash is roasting, which allows the sugars in the flesh to caramelize, and this maximizes the flavor profile of the squash. Honeynut squash can be used in any recipe calling for butternut or other winter squash varieties and can be added to soups, stews, or braising liquids. It can also be roasted and pureed, mashed, or cooled and combined with nuts, cheeses and bitter lettuces for salads or side dishes. Honeynut squash pairs well with radicchio, kale, miso, green apples, pine nuts, farro, quinoa, garlic, onion, chives, thyme, sage, nutmeg, cinnamon, Parmigiano Reggiano, mushrooms, corn, black beans, maple syrup, and honey.

It will keep up to a month when stored in a cool and dry place, and any peeled or prepared portions can be refrigerated for up to a week. Raw, cut Honeynut squash can be frozen up to three months.
