About gold nugget squash
Gold nugget squash is a staple in many households, particularly toward the end of summer and into winter when they're in season. Gold nugget squash is a winter squash developed in 1966 by Dr. Holland in North Dakota. It won the All American Award in 1966 and was bred initially as a replacement for sweet potatoes in areas with shorter growing seasons. It grows typically as a bush and can spread rather far, yielding a large harvest in ideal conditions.
It's pumpkin-shaped with orange flesh and a deeper orange skin, or rind; the skin is rather tough and protects the flesh. You can bake the tough skin along with the flesh or remove it before cooking. Because of the texture and lack of flavor, you should not eat the skin. You can discard it or add the cut-off skin to your compost heap.
The flesh of gold nugget squash can be steamed, baked, roasted, boiled, or sauteed. You can prepare it with or without skin, but remove the skin before consumption. Gold nugget squash contains fiber, iron, potassium, beta-carotene, niacin, and vitamins A and C. Beta-carotene is a common nutritional component in vegetables with orange flesh. The body converts this into vitamin A, which is important for vision, cell growth, and healthy organs.
