02 Storage: dry is nice


That's why I started looking for ways to cook, bake, can, cook and preserve squash to add to our food stock and pantry.

Adding squash to shepherd's pie, baked oatmeal, smoothies, mac and cheese, and making squash patties are just a few ideas.

Varieties of squash include zucchini ((really!) spaghetti squash, butternut squash, acorn squash, and pumpkins too.

One of the most common ways to prepare squash is to roast it in the oven with a little maple syrup.

You can add squash to pizza, frittatas, or even stuff it with your favorite filling. And don't forget to roast the seeds.
