Acorn squash is a winter squash with a sweet, yellow-orange flesh inside.

The farmer’s market has many varieties of squash this time of year. This recipe would also work for carnival squash and butternut squash. To eat, simply mash it all around in the shell and enjoy each bite.

Some might even consider this as a dessert and adding a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
