Blue Hubbard Squash is a New England tradition, originating from Marblehead, Massachusetts, and is excellent for serving on a cold, autumn evening.  This beloved heirloom has a hard, bumpy, blue-grey shell that makes it spectacular for storage and showcasing at a farmstand. The flesh is deep orange and has the nutty, sweet taste of a sweet potato or rich pumpkin.
