Honey, I Shrunk the Squash

"Michael Mazourek, a plant breeder at Cornell University, takes his cues from cooks to breed new ingredients that are flavorful, nutritious, resilient, and high-yielding. Together, we've collaborated on a number of experimental varieties, including the Honeynut squash, a butternut squash cross that fits in the palm of your hand and has about ten times the sweetness and squash flavor of the workaday butternut."
—Dan Barber, Blue Hill, NYC

Find Honeynut squash at New York and Oregon farmers' markets, or buy seeds from and grow your own.
