Acorn Squash Delivery or Pickup

The Instacart guide to acorn squash

With its acorn-like shape, ridged skin, and yellow-orange flesh, acorn squash is easy to recognize. Also known as pepper squash, acorn squash has a sweet, mellow flavor that pairs well with maple syrup, garlic, bacon, and spices such as nutmeg. This fruit is rich in minerals, fiber, antioxidants, and vitamins. Acorn squash is often mistaken for a gourd because of its color and shape. However, gourds typically don't contain any edible flesh.\n
Acorn squash can be cooked either with its skin on or peeled and is a staple side dish of many cooking enthusiasts. This fruit has a thick, tough rind that makes it the perfect choice for chefs searching for produce with a longer shelf life.

FAQs About Acorn Squash

Technically, you can use acorn squash skin without having to worry about any repercussions after it's been roasted. However, you may find that some of your guests and family members don't like the taste of the peel. The good thing is that you don't have to peel the acorn squash before cooking, as the skin easily peels off after roasting.

Once purchased, you can store acorn squash on your counter for days without it going bad, but heat can cause the fruit to wither. For the longest shelf life, ensure you store the squash in a room that won't exceed 50 degrees Fahrenheit. It's also best to eat the vegetable within two weeks of buying for the best fresh taste.

If you've used half of an acorn squash in a side dish and wish to save the other half for another meal, wrap the cut acorn squash in cling film and store it in the refrigerator for up to four days.

Surprisingly, acorn squash contains more carbohydrates than cauliflower, leafy greens, or bell peppers. Therefore, eating more of this vegetable will provide your body with energy, but those on low-carb diets may wish to avoid this squash.
