SPOTLIGHT: Our own eight-ball squash

Sunday, July 27, 2014, 6:07 am

Eight ball squash are a hybrid zucchini variety, named because of their round shape resembling a billiard ball.

The eight ball squash is similar in color and taste to Italian zucchini. The squash have a shiny, speckled, green skin, and creamy, white flesh. They are firm and very mild-tasting and may be substituted for zucchini in most recipes.

The size and shape of this squash also make it ideal for stuffing; slice off the top stem end, scoop out some of the interior and fill with meats, cheeses or nuts and grains. Eight ball quash may also be steamed, baked, roasted or grilled as you would other summer squash. Dice and stir-fry or saute with garlic, onions, fresh herbs and spices.
