A Note to the Host
“Pumpkins aren't just for carving, they can be turned into frighteningly fun food. Pumpkin and sweet butternut squash taste delicious in soups, salads, pastas, appetizers and desserts! Add bright orange, pumpkin inspired recipes and sweet treats to your Halloween party menu.”
- Pumpkin and Winter squash may look intimidating on the outside, but they're sweet, meaty, and versatile ingredients for a variety of recipes. Both pumpkin and squash are officially fruit, not vegetables.
- Select squash that’s heavy for it’s size, with stem intact. Butternut squash should be smooth, matte, and uniform in color. A shiny skin is a sign that the squash wasn’t ripe when it was picked.
- Winter squash can be stored for up to month at room temperature, and even longer if kept in a cool dark place. Don’t refrigerate squash!
