Cucurbitas: Winter Squash and Pumpkins

Cucurbitas: Winter Squash and Pumpkins

1 comment

One of the best things about fall and winter seasons is that we get to eat seasonal foods--root vegetables, winter squash and pumpkins, brassicas, cool-weather greens, apples, pears, pomegranates, persimmons, all sorts of nuts and more. Most of these foods store well, so we are able to enjoy them during the cold weather. I especially like winter squash and pumpkin; their bright orange and yellow flesh brightens our meals and nourishes us. Here are a few that I have grown, or are easy to get at your farmers' markets, local farm stands, organic markets and even the grocery store.

Wait! Don't toss those winter squash and pumpkins into the compost. Make a golden yellow puree to have flavor and sunshine on a winter day. You will be glad if you put them up for winter soup, stews, bread pudding, pies, cakes, scones and more.

Use whichever winter squash you prefer. Some of my favorites are Sweet Dumpling, Delicata, Blue Hubbard, Carnival, acorn, and butternut; I usually use two different types for this dish. This is so simple and oh-so-good.

Winter Squash Soup with Black Beans and Corn

Winter Squash Soup with Black Beans and Corn

5 comments

This Southwestern-style soup features the native trio of squash, beans, and corn; their flavors having been combined for centuries. This soup is quick to assemble once the squash or pumpkin has been prepared. It can be made ahead; it is one of those soups that tastes even better the next day. If you don't like cilantro, substitute Italian flat-leaved parsley and/or basil.

Butternut squash is paired with tomatoes, cubes of cheese, sage, and white wine. The sharpness of the cheddar is a good counterpoint to the squash's sweet flesh.
