Local Grown Baby Hubbard Squash are bumpy skinned, hard-shelled pumpkins that are pretty ugly but inside is a dense, richly flavoured flesh. Since the Hubbard squash is so hard to peel, it is best halved and then roasted. When it’s done roasting, the flesh can be scooped out and used in soups or purées.
They have a blue-hued skin, with a golden centre. Smooth texture with a sweet and nutty-tasting flesh.
