Golden Nugget Squash

Golden Nugget squash can be prepared with or without its skin, but the skin should be removed prior to eating. It can be baked whole or halved, or cubed and then roasted, steamed, boiled, and sautéed.

Here's a simple recipe to try from : Roasted golden nugget squash

Cooked squash can be pureed and added to risotto, soup or curries. Cooked squash can be added to casseroles, pies, tacos, salads, pasta dishes and chili. Its petite size is perfect for stuffed and baked squash applications when filled with grains, vegetables, and cheeses. Its flavour marries well with cinnamon, nutmeg, curry, sage, chard, kale, parsley, coriander, bell pepper, apple, pear, quinoa, rice, maple syrup, toasted pecans, butter, cream, melting and hard cheeses, and balsamic vinegar. Gold Nugget squash will keep in cool, dry storage for one to two months.
