Winter squash come in many sizes and shapes, but all have hard outer rinds that surround sweet, often orange flesh. Winter squash arrive late in the growing season and have a long storage life, so they've long been a staple in winter and spring when other vegetables are harder to come by. Pumpkin, acorn squash, Hubbard squash, buttercup and butternut squash are all examples of this wonderful vegetable. This recipe only uses one cup of squash, so it's a good way to recycle a little dab of leftover squash into something new and wonderful.
