Honey I Shrunk the Squash!

honeynut_squashFresh Fall Fare: Honey I Shrunk the Squash!
Fresh to Walter Stewart’s, Organic Honeynut Squash from certified organic Hepworth Farms, a seventh generation family farm in the Hudson Valley. Honeynut squash is a butternut squash cross that fits in the palm of your hand and has about ten times the sweetness and squash flavor of the workaday butternut.
There are many ways to serve squash but here’s a great recipe from that works with Honeynut Squash as well as Acorn, Butternet and many other varieties of winter squash. You may use other squash – you may even peel and cut the squash into bite size pieces, bake until soft, pour the honey mixture over and return to the oven for 5-10 minutes. Cut a thin slice off each half so the squash will sit nice and even.
