The Instacart guide to buying gem squash

About gem squash

Gem squash is a round, dark green summer squash that originates from Central America. You can easily cultivate gem squashes in a sunny location. Their seeds, which were once difficult to obtain, are now available through mail-order companies. People usually use dried gem squashes as decorative gourds in the fall. 

Gem squash is related to the pumpkin and the butternut squash. It's edible at all stages of its development. Early gem squash is about the size of a golf ball, and its seeds and skin are edible, as is its flesh. You can bake a whole gem squash in the oven or microwave, but you should pierce it before cooking. 

You can also cut gems in half and cook them in several ways, including grilling, broiling, and baking. You can also scoop out the gems' seeds before cooking, and you can fill the halves with meats, cheeses, creamed corns, and spices. Gems have a sweet flavor, so sugar, nutmeg, and cinnamon also are popular flavorings for these vegetables.
