Musquee De Provence Squash

P1040952

This big squash came in on the scales at 22 pounds, it was one of my unknown, sort off, it came from a friend who started a few different heritage  and she knew what she had started for me, and only the Musquee De Provence Squash fits the bill on what I got, size, shape and flesh color and texture.

The seeds came from out west, the plant breeder has a good rep, so even thought its a little off in size, the average for this type is 12 to 15 pounds.  The flesh is fine, rich and so good. the rind is crazy hard.. I can see why these are good winter keepers with that skin.

I boiled some, so good.. taste tested by a few ladies everyone liked it.  I love it, I am going to order in seeds on it from a few sources, and do a minor landrace grow out on it next year, I have saved seeds but am unsure if it crossed or not. I also dried out a few seeds and baked and salted them.. very nice.. good size to them but not to fat compared to some pumpkin seeds

I canned some, roasted some. Made Pie with a portion of it.. Recipe coming very soon, as in the next blog post 😛
