This is the first year I ever grew your Blue Hubbard Squash. I was wondering if there is any special or different way to cook it? Or better yet, how do you prepare it?

You can use it in any recipe calling for pumpkin or winter squashes such as acorn or butternut. A quick internet search should yield a number of recipes. A simple method is to wash it, cut it into quarters, scoop out the seeds and membrane then bake it rind side up in a shallow baking dish with about a half an inch of water. Bake at 375 or so until tender. (Check with a fork). Eat "as is" with butter and pepper or scoop out the pulp and put it through a food mill. Season with pepper, butter, fruit juice or herbs to taste. You can also puree it and freeze it.
