What’s in your box this week: German butterball potatoes, red onions, black futsu squash, baby beets, purple top turnips & a January king cabbage.
The Black Futsu is hands down my favorite squash this year! It have an amazing flavor, and is very creamy when roasted. I have been cutting them in half, deseeding, and roasting cut side down at 350 for 25-35min, or until fork tender. Then inside can be used like any other squash or pumpkin would be. I have substituted it in pumpkin bread recipes, and used it as is tossed with pasta, parmesan & salt/pepper. It is so creamy!
The skin, like with all winter squash is edible. It can even be eaten raw, sliced very thinly into salads.
