I believe this irregular shaped squash is the most beautiful of all the squash family – Ontario Turban Squash is available at Harvest Barn Country Markets.
This squash usually reaches an optimum size of about 6 pounds and its size depends on the growth near the large knobs adjacent to the stem.
This gorgeous specimen of a turban squash, drenched in fantastic, earthy colors, will not likely be as flavorful as others of the squash family, but it lends itself well to the absorption of strong flavors, intense herbs and and warm spices, which create delicious and appealing results for a number of tasty dishes.
I plan to take my time while deciding which dish will do the most for this amazing squash. In the meantime, it is so pretty, you could make an attractive centerpiece for your Thanksgiving table. Don’t be afraid to use your imagination when creating recipes.

I am so pleased that my local Harvest Barn Country Market in Niagara-on-the-Lake had this turban squash on hand when I dropped by. Its beautiful colors attest to its freshness, as the produce at Harvest Barn consistently shows. They have another location in St. Catharines, Ontario and you can find them online:
As much as is possible, Harvest Barn Country Markets bring in their fresh produce from within a 100 mile radius of their locations, so transportation isn’t inclined to cause the damages, blemishes or bruising, such as the impact of long distance trips might, for certain imports and produce picked green, and forced to ripen during extended travel, and on the shelf.
I look forward to sharing my turban squash recipes with you soon.
Do stop in at Harvest Barn Country Markets and don’t hesitate to incorporate an Ontario turban squash into your recipe repertoire.
