Carnival Squash

3 years ago

I am a bit fan of squash its a vegetable I tend to eat all year round, but during the fall/winter months I have them more often because its a homey and delicious side dish. So while at Trader Joes I spotted the Carnival Squash and decided to pick one up. I figured due to its shape it had to be similar to the acorn squash and I was right.

Carnival Squash is a winter squash which has a noticeable look to it its yellow and green and the coloring can be splattered throughout or it will have green coloring running through the yellow. The rind is thicker so its not a skin you could eat. The label on the squash stated you could pierce it a few times with a fork and cook it in the microwave, then slice, remove the seeds, stuff and finish cooking. But I opted to go with my handy oven roasting method. I cut my squash in half, removed the seeds, gave it a light sprinkling of salt and pepper, then after a few sprays of butter I put it into a 350 degree oven for 45 minutes.

My squash was cooked through and was perfect. The flesh tastes sweeter than acorn, almost reminiscent of a sweet potato and holds up nicely. I definitely enjoyed this and will pick it up again I spot it while out shopping.

What is your favorite type of squash?
