Every time I go to the local farmstands I stock up on winter squash. My go-to is butternut squash, but this time I figured I’d try the acorn squash. Acorn squash has a slightly buttery and sweet taste. It’s perfect for stuffing with rice and vegetables!

Acorn Squash is a winter squash with distinctive longitudinal ridges on its exterior and sweet, yellow-orange flesh inside. Thanks to its’ mild flavor, acorn squash pairs well with both sweet and savory flavors.

Acorn squash is rich in nutrients, such as fiber, vitamin C, potassium, and magnesium. It also packs many beneficial plant compounds, including carotenoid antioxidants.
