Too many kinds of Fall squash/pumpkin at the store. I bought an Amber cup due to a brief description on the label-Very sweet with golden orange meat; fine grain; good for stuffing or baking.
This is a big one, I am going to make a couple dishes out of it. First course today, Pumpkin Risotto. Well, it was called Amber cup not pumpkin but it is sweet and beautiful orange meat. I think it will be good.
A cleaver will help to chop up a large tough squash easy. Do not chop squash on the pricy counter. Vietnamese way, put the squash on a cutting board on the floor. Chop it into half. Scoop the seeds out with a spoon. Then chop the halves into small pieces. Hold one piece on the cutting board. Remove the skin with a sharp chef knife.
