This acorn-shaped Missouri heirloom variety boasts a lush, unmistakabley 'sweet potato' flavor that goes naturally with roasts and game. Try seasoning this squash with a touch of nutmeg to bring our the sweet chestnut flavor, then mash and serve steaming hot with a traditional harvest feast. Or perhaps you prefer to roast and puree this tender, buttery-soft squash as a base for a comforting winter soup. Thelma Sanders makes a great alternative to its butternut or acorn squash cousins and also stores exceptionally well.
