Sqaush, Acorn - one acorn squash is about 1 pound, 454 gramsacorn_squash

The acorn squash is a winter squash with a dark green skin and orange, yellow flesh. The rinds of the acorn squash is quite hard and can be difficult to peel, therefore it is easier to cook the acorn squash with the peel on (roasting is a good technique) and then grab the soft flesh out of the skin once it is cooked.

The meat of the acorn squash is quite sweet. Acorn squash is suitable to cut in half and fill with a stuffing, thereby using the skin as a serving bowl.

The acorn squash is a good source of fiber and potassium, as well as smaller amounts of vitamins C and B, magnesium, and manganese.
