Since fall is in the middle of summer and winter, I’d say fall is the season of squash. Summer squash, like zucchini and yellow squash, is still being harvested in large quantities at the end of the summer. Especially if you grow your own, you’re probably up to your ears in the stuff without enough squash recipes to make use of it.
As for winter squash, now is the time for squash like butternut, acorn, and more to start making an appearance at farmers markets! Plus, it won’t be long until grocery stores mark down prices of winter squash, so you can make amazing squash recipes for cheap.
