featured recipe

Roasted Red Kuri Squash + Tart Cherries


Four more outdoor weeks, then 7 indoor markets providing  direct access to locally grown food from the farmers at the Downtown Marquette Farmers Market. There is an abundance of squash varieties. All of them taste great and can be prepared in different ways; roasted or steamed. Usually when eating winter squash, only the inside flesh is eaten. The Red Kuri Squash, however, both the flesh and skin can be eaten! Give it a try, either as a main course or a side dish; it would be fabulous with lamb chops or pork chops.

Red Kuri squash, or orange Hokkaido pumpkin, has smooth flesh and a rich, sweet flavor that shines through in pies, soups, and side dishes. Red Kuri Squash or Hokkaido Pumpkin

  • 1 small/medium red kuri squash
