I plant a variety of winter squash in my garden, and in late September/early October I begin harvesting these jewels of fall and winter. Squash stores well and is an excellent source of vitamin A. You’ll find local squash at a good price, and here are a few tempting recipes to get you started. These recipes use butternut squash, which is somewhat shaped like a bowling pin. I find it easiest to peel if you cut off the bottom to make it level.
