Squash, Hubbard

(Squash, Hubbard)  The Hubbard Squash is the largest squash we have seen in the markets.  Its orange flesh is very good tasting, and the whole squash is excellent for stuffing as the entree of holiday feasts.  See our recipe for stuffed Hubbard squash.  Select a squash that is free from bruises and has a good appearance, if you intend to stuff it (also make sure it will fit into your roasting pan).  The Hubbard squash received its name from Elizabeth Hubbard sometime around 1842, after she distributed the seeds of this previously un-named squash produced by Knott Martin.  Our first encounter with Hubbard squash was on the island of Jamaica, where this squash is called "pumpkin" and is made into a curried soup (substitute 4 cups of Hubbard squash for this recipe).  See the nutritional chart below.

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!  (d-19)
