Honeynut squash is a type of winter squash. It has a sweet, nutty taste similar to that of a pumpkin. It has deep tan skin and orange fleshy pulp with a compartment of seeds in the bottom. It is a good source of fiber, vitamin C, A, & E, manganese, magnesium, & potassium.
One of the most common ways to prepare honeynut squash is roasting. To do this, the squash is cut in half lengthwise (see pictures), lightly brushed with cooking oil or put in a thin layer of water and placed cut side down on a baking sheet. It is then baked for 45 minutes or until soft.
The fruit is prepared by removing the skin, stem, and seeds, which are not usually eaten or cooked. However, the seeds are edible and can be eaten either raw or roasted. Honeynut is like a butternut squash in everyway, but smaller with a sweeter taste
