What on earth do I do with a hubbard squash?

Recommended Posts

Put it in the oven for 30 minutes until the skin has cooked a bit. Then you can poke a sharp knife into it a couple times (like you do for potatoes). Then continue baking until the whole thing is soft.


Cut it open, scoop out the seeds, and put the flesh in a bowl to be mashed.


The flesh will scoop easily off the skin.


Hubbards are my fav. squash. We call them dinosaur eggs. :D

The thought of needing an axe or a hatchet to open a squash is a bit intimidating. :) I'm sure DH has one buried in the garage somewhere.


If I were to put it in the oven, at what temp do I bake it? Do I bake it at that temp for the entire time, or do I adjust it once I've knifed the squash? How long does it normally take to bake? I know this last question is somewhat relative given the variance in size. The one I have is as big as my 1 yr old (if he were curled into a ball).

roast it in a baking dish with a little water in the botom at 350 for about 45 min until soft then use like pumpkin.

I always bake all my squash whole. Its fabulously easy.

Just don't forget to poke some holes in it. Exploding squash is not fun to clean up!


If it is quite large it might take as much as an hour. Just poke it like you would a potatoe to check for doneness.
