A bit of a squash
The latest instalment of Rod and Ben’s weekly newsletter, which charts the experience of the organic farmers in Kenn (near Exeter), is up on eatdrinksouthdevon, or read it on their own site, and get ordering some organic food while you’re there.
Just to whet your appetite, here’s a recipe, included in the newsletter, for squash.
Try it, go on, live a little, huh?
To prepare, peel and cut into cubes.
• There are many uses and ways of cooking squash.
• Cubes of flesh can be fried in oil and garlic or put in a pan with a little butter and oil and left over a low heat to steam in their own juice.
• They will cook inside 15 minutes. Squash can be boiled for about 20 minutes, until tender, then mashed and served with butter and salt and pepper.
• Cooked squash can be seasoned and puréed to use as a sauce or basis for a soup. Crown prince is the basis of our squash soups.
• Whole squash can also be stuffed and baked or a delicious but simple alternative is to roast or bake cubes either on their own or with other vegetables for about 30-45 minutes.
