Many people have asked us how to prepare acorn, buttercup, butternut, or spaghetti squash. Here is a simple way to prepare them.

Cut squash in half or into serving pieces; remove seeds and fibers. (OR: use a fork to poke holes in the squash like you would a potato and bake before cutting to make it much easier to cut.)
To bake: place squash in ungreased rectangular baking dish, 13x9x2 inches. Sprinkle cut sides with salt and pepper; dot with margarine. Pour water into dish to ¼ inch depth. Cover and bake until tender in 400 degree oven 30-40 minutes.
To boil: Heat 1 inch salted water (1/2 t salt to 1 c water) to boiling. Add squash. Cover and heat to boiling; reduce heat. Boil until tender, 15-20 minutes; drain.
We are often asked how to cook neck pumpkins, so I thought I would include this recipe for pie. You can substitute the extra pumpkin for any other pumpkin recipes that you have that list canned pumpkin.

large neck pumpkin, cooked (see instructions below)
¾ c sugar
1½ T flour
½ t salt
1½ c milk
1¼ t cinnamon
¼ t ginger
¼ t nutmeg
⅛ t ground cloves
Cooking the Pumpkin:
Peel and remove stringy pumpkin from the inside.
Cut into small chunks and boil with water until soft, about 30 minutes.
Blend in a food processor or blender.
Freeze any leftovers in 2-cup containers.
Mix 2 cups pumpkin and the rest of the ingredients in blender until well blended.
Brush small amount of egg white on pie crust.
This helps to keep the crust from getting soggy.
Pour into pie crust and bake at 425 degrees for 10 minutes.
Reduce heat to 375 degrees for additional 40 minutes until knife inserted in center comes out clean.
If using a foil pan, set it on a cookie sheet so the crust will be well done.
The submitter of this recipe says she likes it cold with whipped cream or warm with vanilla ice cream. Gay also says that it can be made with ½ the butter/margarine and it still tastes great. Thanks Gay! By the way - we carry both the neck pumpkins and the pumpkin pie spice!
