Random Veg

Last night, after hashing, I went to a village 'Harvest Auction'.
I bought a seasonal veg box (what else would I be buying at a 'Harvest Auction'?).
In the box is a random vegetable I have never seen before.
I think it might be a squash, but I'm not sure. Can anyone identify it and suggest how I might cook it? Recipe ideas welcome!

  1. It's a Carnival heirloom pumpkin/squash and is apparently good to eat. Try this link for recipe ideas: http://www.thedailygreen.com/healthy-eating/eat-safe/pumpkin-recipes. Also "They are delicious when baked with brown sugar, honey, and butter, providing a sweet and somewhat nutty flavor. Smaller individual squash are also commonly served whole, stuffed with ingredients such as sausage, bread, vegetables, and seasonings that may have been baked once and then again inside the squash so it is served as a "stuffed squash"." (from http://www.providentorganicfarm.com/descriptions/winterSquashVarity.htm). Hope this helps (this kind of research is right up my street!)
