MEET THE HONEYNUT - WE ARE IN LOVE!
Meet butternut squash's "mini-me": the Honeynut squash. Though tiny in size, this adorable squash is packed with nutrients and flavor.
What is Honeynut squash?
The Honeynut squash is the result of a collaboration between Michael Mazourek, an associate professor in Plant Breeding and Genetics at Cornell University, and Dan Barber, chef and co-owner of the iconic Blue Hill at Stone Barns in Pocantico Hills, New York—remember him from Volume 1 of Chef’s Table? This collaboration, which started out as a friendly challenge, resulted in a smaller version of the butternut squash with a more tempting flavor.
But what does it taste like?
Since this squash was bred specifically for its flavor, it has to be good, right? We think so! The Honeynut squash is much more flavorful than its larger cousin. It’s often described as sweet and nutty. Besides being packed with more flavor than traditional butternut squash, the tiny Honeynut squash has more nutrients; it’s estimated that a single serving has twice the beta-carotene of an equal amount of butternut squash. The Honeynut is also a good source of vitamin A.
