Calabaza Squash

Calabaza Squash is related to the pumpkin. You can definitely cook it like one too!

Quality Check

When picking squash, pay attention to its weight. It should feel heavy for its size. The stem should also be firm and dry. The skin of the squash should look dull. Also, make sure the skin has no cracks or dark spots on it. If you have a cool cellar room you can store the squash there for months.


Squash is similar to carrots in that you can caramelize it. Cook it at a high heat to bring out its sweetness. You can also roast it with a bit of salt as well.
