Such a classic that just about every recipe for cream of squash soup seems to be Butternut. But you don't have to make soup with it. You can also just halve it and bake it too. Butternut also makes a quite attractive "pumpkin" pie and a nice addition to a curry.

A slightly more unusual vegetable that you'll only get a couple times this year. Escarole is a type of endive. It's related to dandelion greens, and radicchio. It's a mildy bitter green (that bitter is what alot of people are after). I didn't used to like it, but now,...
