Pumpkin squash is medium to large in size, averaging?5 kg, and is round with a flattened shape. The thick, fine-textured, firm flesh is a vibrant orange. When cooked, Pumpkin is tender, has a mild, spicy scent, and a sweet flavor.
Pumpkin squash is best suited for cooked applications such as roasting, sauteing, baking and grilling, but it can also be consumed raw and used for a variety of sweet applications. The large squash should be cut from the center, like a pie, and requires a very sharp knife. Roast wedges or diced pieces and serve as is, use in pies, baked goods, soups, or sauces. Incorporate into risotto, pasta, or green salads.
Freeze cut pieces of squash for up to six months.
