"Acorn squash is a small variety of winter squash named for its resemblance to a large acorn. Its firm, yellow-orange flesh has a mellow, sweet flavor that pairs well in dishes containing bacon, garlic, maple syrup or spices such as sage or nutmeg. The American Dietetic Association lists winter squash as one of the best sources of the antioxidant beta carotene. Acorn squash contains vitamin A, niacin, folate, thiamine and vitamin B-6, but it is an especially good source of vitamin C." ~ "Healthy Facts about Acorn Squash" from SFGate's Healthy Eating.
