Carnival Squash are known for their fun looking orange and green speckled exterior-but they are so much more than just a centerpiece.
Fun fact: the green coloring is a sign that the squash is at its peak ripeness--perfect for eating. Its colors will fade overtime, indicating that it is past its prime.
When cooked, carnival squash develops an earthier, nuttier flavor than most other cooked squash, but still with the same buttery, sweet nuances we are familiar with. It is also highly fragrant and has a soft, melting texture. Their medium-small size is excellent for simply halving, stuffing and plating as a seasonal dinner for two.
