Part of a series From Seed To Supper for what to grow, how to grow it and what to do with it once it's grown, the subject is winter squash and pumpkins. Winter squash (and pumpkins), a warm weather crop is called 'winter' because with their hard shells, they can be stored well into and through the winter. Hills and drills of squash will produce an abundance of fruit (and a heap of blossoms) that can be prepared on their own or transformed into side dishes, pies, cakes, puddings, preserves, ice cream and even pickles. Squash were first cultivated in pre-historic times for their nutritious seeds. With more than 85 recipes and procedures from seed planting to harvest and on to sweet buttered squash, pumpkin pie or seed eating, this book tells how!
