About Butterkin squash
Butterkin squash is a recent squash variety that debuted in 2014. It looks like a mini pumpkin on the outside with an orange color and pumpkin shape, along with a deep orange flesh. It is a winter squash that was developed by Hybrid Seeds in New Zealand. Butterkin squash tastes more like butternut squash and acorn squash than pumpkin, and it has a buttery and sweet flavor. Butterkin squash weighs from 2 to 4 pounds and is 6 to 8 inches in diameter.
Butterkin squash is a hybrid between the pumpkin and the butternut squash, so its name is a mix of those two names. Since it's still relatively new to the commercial market, it's not as easily available and can be more difficult to spot than its relatives. The difference between the butternut squash and the Butterkin squash is that Butterkin has a sweeter and creamier texture, and it's also less stringy than the butternut squash. Since it's less stringy, you'll find that it is perfect for making soups with it without having to do a lot of work.
You can use your imagination when it comes to cooking Butterkin squash. It's a great fall ingredient to prepare for eating alone or incorporating into pies and custards, soups and stews, or rice dishes. It is also a great side dish to accompany meats and other vegetables, salads, and breads. Since it is starchy and full of fiber, it's a filling food that can also be substituted for meat for vegetarians or vegans. Butterkin squash is versatile and is quickly becoming a popular squash variety in the U.S.
Butterkin squash can be prepared in a variety of ways, just like any other squash. If you want to roast the Butterkin, add a little butter or oil, salt and pepper, and some sugar and put it in the oven. Roast it in the oven until tender. Making a Butterkin squash puree is also not too difficult to prepare and takes about an hour in total. Once the Butterkin squash has been roasted in the oven, you can spoon the pulp into a bowl and mash it like mashed potatoes. Add butter for a creamier consistency and enjoy.
