This Week's Featured Product is Butternut squash

Butternut Squash is one of the more popular winter squash because it is easy to use and has a sweet, nutty taste. Butternut squash can be roasted, mashed, or pureed into soups, casseroles, breads, and muffins. When ripe, its flesh turns a brillantly deep, rich orange color, which is not only pretty but also is indicative of a number of healthful properties.

When selecting winter squash, look for a firm rind and withered stem ? signs that it was picked at its peak of ripeness.

A healthy winter squash will last several months on your countertop.

You can purchase butternut squash from Andreotti Family Farm or another of the local farmers selling butternut squash.

This farm has been in business since 1926 which offers delicious, just picked strawberries, artichokes, peas, brussel sprouts, beans, cucumbers and whatever else is growing in their adjacent fields.
