Crown Prince squash

Nature has its own way of storing the golden autumn sun for use during the long months of winter.

It is called Crown Prince squash.

Last year we planted Crown Prince and had en excellent harvest. Their yield was much greater than our previous favourite, the butternut squash. Its other great value is that it stores so well.

Here we are in February, and large squash sit in the gloom of the cool garage, waiting to be used.

They make the most wonderful soup, love to be added to risottos and their flavour can be intensified by oven roasting.
