As the days grow shorter and the temperatures dip, it’s time to bring home winter squash. Even though they’re harvested in the fall, they’re called winter squash because their hard thick skins protect them during the winter. Don’t be intimidated by their size or shape, they are very easy to work with and taste amazing.
