UK Seasonality

We sow our squash in small pots in late April for planting out in mid May. They will not tolerate frost and we sometimes use crop covers to get them off to a good start.
A tray of slow-roasted squash is one of the most versatile bases out there for a hearty meal

How to prepare

Some varieties have thin skin that is perfectly edible and can be left on, if you like; it’s a matter of preference. Generally, you’ll want to remove the skin by attacking it with a good peeler, but it is best to use a sturdy knife for the more robust and gnarly ones. Scoop out the insides with a large spoon - the seeds can be roasted as a snack and the pulp can be added to a stock pot if you want to avoid waste. Cut your squash into wedges or chunks for roasting, braising or adding into any number of soups, stews or sauces. The smaller varieties can be hollowed out, stuffed and baked whole if the fancy takes you.

For more info on varieties, look up squash in our A-Z of Veg.

Storage

Squash love being warm and dry, so enjoy their decorative qualities and store on a kitchen shelf. They should last weeks, if not months, like this. Once cut, keep it in the fridge and eat within a few days.
