Honey Bear squash FTW. Figuring I better do something with yon squash before it did something evil, like rot, I took some advice gathered Saturday evening and nuked the sucker a minute so I could get the knife through (unevenly, as usual). The online recipes all claim that cooking squash takes an hour or more; after last night I'm inclined to completely disbelieve them. I did find a couple that gave nuking guidelines, and since dinner was already on and this was an experiment anyway... A dash of salt and pepper, and about 10 minutes, 5 at a time, in a covered container and it was quite edible. I threw a little butter on after cooking because -- well, butter! But it wasn't anything but a little additional flavor. It was deemed 'repeatable, but try the oven next time' by the Other Half. Now that I have an idea what I'm shooting for, edibility wise, I think I'll do just that.
Hooray for farmers' markets! I may need to stock up, since squash keeps a bit longer than most veggies. Shame that :)
