Green acorn squash is available year-round, peaking during fall and winter.
While green acorn squash are still the most familiar of the type, new varieties are becoming available, including gold acorn squash, and a white acorn variety which also produce light yellow to orange flesh.
This dark green squash is acorn-shaped, hence its name. Its orange colored flesh offers a mildly sweet flavor and a somewhat dry texture. Its hardy rind has deep, characteristic ridges which are often times capped with a splash of orange, considered a sign of maturity.
Not as rich in beta-carotene as other winter varieties, acorn squash is an excellent source of dietary fiber and contains vitamin C, vitamin B6, magnesium and manganese plus a substantial amount of potassium.
Acorn squash are a hard-skinned, winter variety. They may be peeled, but are more often cooked with their skin-on. Peel and dice, or cut into slices along the natural ribs; toss with oils, spices or herbs and bake or roast. Serve with or without the skin. Cooked squash may be pureed and added to soups, stews, risotto, cakes or other baked goods. Stuff and bake halves with meats, cheese, grains or other vegetables. Acorn squash will keep at room temperature for many weeks.
The acorn squash was a favorite of early civilizations as it could be baked whole in outdoor clay and brick ovens. Dating back to 4000 B.C., acorn squash, sometimes called Danish squash, is an edible gourd that grows on a vine. Generally considered to be a winter squash, the acorn squash is a member of the same family as summer squash, also known as Cucurbita pepo.
