Shopping for Squash
Rules for choosing squash and pumpkins are similar: choose squash with a firm rind that isn’t easy to press into, that is heavy for its size, with dull (not glossy) skin, and no blemishes. Store in a cool, dry spot; an average storage time is four weeks, but some varieties will keep up to three months in proper conditions. While it’s best to remove the seeds and stringy flesh before steaming, baking, or roasting, the seeds and rind of some varieties are edible if fully cooked (such as butternut and buttercup squash).
All types of squash are a rich source of protein, Vitamin C and B6, magnesium, and potassium. They are low-fat, low-calorie, and have a low-glycemic load.
Most varieties of squash have a creamy, mild taste and sweetness level. Buttercup (Kabosha) is sweeter than average, while Acorn has a slightly nutty taste.
