That time of year...

...when the accidental squash are running away with productivity! All those squash seeds from last years' compost that got randomly spread throughout our garden yielded a hefty haul of butternut and delicata and carnival and sweet dumpling and ambercup and maybe even some unidentified squashes!

Eddie Vedder doesn't quite know what to make of all this...

And what should we make of all this? Any recipe or serving ideas?

Visions of squash soup and stuffed squash and squash/bean enchiladas and sugar plum fairies are dancing through my head!


  1. How about a green squash curry with serrano chiles?

  2. But where would I found serrano chiles?

  3. One thing I have always liked that my mom used to make: cut the squash in half; fill each half with diced apples (another great autumn food!) that have been smothered in maple syrup and maybe cinnamon (you'll have to experiment). Bake 'em in the oven. Then when they come out you have a squash bowl full of sweetness and you can eat it all with a spoon! Yum!
