Honeynut Squash (1 count)
Honeynut squash is a relatively new hybrid version of butternut squash. It has the same shape as butternut squash, but it’s much smaller, about the size of a medium potato. Its skin is bright orange as well as the flesh which has a sweet and nutty flavor.
In 2009, Chef Dan Barber of Blue Hill challenged vegetable breeder Michael Mazourek to “breed a butternut squash to actually taste good” so that cooks wouldn’t have to add so much added sugar (like maple and honey) to get a delicious-tasting butternut. Mazourek’s response was this adorable tiny squash: the honeynut squash, which does indeed taste like a sweeter butternut squash.
