Our Souties squash were finally ready to be harvested this weekend, we picked a whole bag full and I baked some of them for our Sunday lunch. I can honestly say, this is the most delicious squash I have ever tasted! Full of flavour, soft, creamy and yummy! Richard removed their stalks and cut them in half for me and then into the oven they went to bake for about half an hour. I added butter, salt and pepper beforehand and was hoping to add some crumbed feta but to my great sadness, we didn’t have any! (They were still awesome without the cheese though).  I also made sure I saved seeds for next years planting and will definitely have a bed of this squash growing each year. I found these wonderful heirloom seeds at Livingseeds and must buy some other seeds for our winter planting.

    Once you’ve saved enough seeds for next year’s planting, try roasting the remaining ones. Just pick them out of the strings, don’t wash them, and place them on a cookie sheet with a raised edge. Drizzle on some olive oil and a tablespoon or so of butter, mix well, and then spread them out on the pan. Roast at 375 degrees until well-browned but be sure to stir them up a few times while roasting. Once done, salt lightly and enjoy. Roasted squash seeds are my favorite over pumpkin seeds but neither lasts long in this house!

    They look tasty, pretty too :) I have never managed to successfully grow squash. Do you have any secrets?

    Will look for seeds for this squash. We have no problems growing squash in North Carolina. We DO plant with a kitty ditty…three seeds in each hill..one for me, one for you and one for the crow! Maybe the crow is the problem! LOL. Good luck, BTW, in the South we frequently put butter and brown sugar on small squash like these. We also substitute them for potatoes. So good and so good for you…
