Posted by on Sep 17, 2014 in Food & Recipes | 0 comments

The growing season’s coming to an end in many parts of the country but with the right techniques you can store some of your squash and enjoy it for weeks and months to come.

Winter Squash

  1. Check the squash to make sure there are no bruises or blemishes and the stem is at least two inches long.
  2. Wash the squash to remove dirt and the blossom if it’s still attached. Then, let the squash dry completely.
  3. Put the squash in a place with good circulation and where the temperature be 75°-80° F for 10 days. If you’re going to store acorn squash, you can skip this step as it does not cure.
  4. Store the squash in a cool place (about 50° F) with good circulation and low humidity. Most winter squash will last 3 to 6 months. Acorn and spaghetti squash will only last about 4 weeks.
