This year we were blessed with an amazing winter squash crop. One of the varieties we grow is this White Acorn Squash. It is a nice compact plant, so it fits well in a smaller garden- unlike many of the other winter squashes whose long vines take over!

Acorn squash is a nice small squash that is the perfect size and shape for stuffing. You can stuff them in one of two ways- either slice them in half, remove the seeds, and stuff the 2 halves, or cut the top portion off, scoop out the seeds and you have one larger bowl to stuff.

Most of these recipes call for roasting the squash for about 30 minutes before stuffing- I recommend seasoning well at this point so that your squash has a nice flavor.
