Common Types of Squash
One of the most common winter squash, this foot-long, bell-shaped variety has thin, butterscotch-colored skin and sweet, nutty
flesh. Its smooth, thin skin makes it easier to peel than many other squash varieties. For the most abundant flesh, look for
butternut squash with a long, thick neck. Dense and creamy, it pairs well with a variety of flavors, including smoky bacon,
cinnamon, and balsamic vinegar. It also has the highest doses of vitamins A and C.
Great for: Roasting and soups.
