As we settle into the fall season, there are many foods that have just become in-season. When people think of fall, they might think of pumpkins at first. However, there are other foods that are ready for the market during fall. One of these foods is squash.
Squashes have many nutritional properties, as well as great taste. This makes the vegetable highly desirable for consumers. There are all sorts of squashes that you could offer, and each one has different properties, allowing you to appeal to different consumers. Today, we will review different types of squash.
Spaghetti squash has a vivid yellow color to it. It has a large and oval-like appearance that helps it stand out among other varieties. As the name suggests, spaghetti squashes can be used to replace pasta in dishes that would otherwise use it. Unlike pasta, however, spaghetti squash has fewer carbs and is more nutritious. It also has a very mild flavor to it, so it tends to adopt the flavor of whatever ingredients are used alongside it. This makes it work well with many different dishes.
These types of squashes are incredibly popular and incredibly well known. Butternut squash is a winter variety, so we are approaching the time during which it is best to consume it. While butternut is a fruit, butternut squashes are utilized as vegetables when they are being prepared for consumption.
There is plenty of nutritional value in butternut squash, including vitamins E, C, B, and A. You also get zinc, calcium, fiber, and magnesium.
Acorn squash, just like its butternut counterpart, is considered to be a winter variety. This is a little surprising considering that summer squashes have the same species as it. This variety has its own distinctive nutritional benefits, being chock full of dietary fiber, as well as potassium. It can go well with many types of dishes, often being either cooked, steamed, or sauteed. Sometimes, acorn squash is paired with a little bit of maple syrup so that consumers can get a sweeter flavor. Considering its nutritional value and versatility in the ways you can prepare it, acorn squash has the ability to appeal to the tastes of a wide range of consumers and businesses.
