    Are ALL varieties of squash superfree?

    I know butternut is but we went squash picking the other day and got 4 different varieties which are not bns.

    Hope they are but as sweet potato isn't, I just wondered???

    Yes - the only veggies that are not superfree are potatoes, sweetcorn, peas and parsnips.

    Excellent!!! Thanks guys :)

    Hubby cooked tonight so not sure which ones he used but they've all been nice so far. Don't fancy soup just yet so last night they were roasted and tonight popped in the actifryer.

    We went to a pick your own farm and there were TONS of squash - 4 varieties. Plus, loads of body magic too :)

    Apparently it's as rare as hens teeth in britain, but if you let the farm know you're interested?

    My dad used to grow spaghetti squash when I was little. I used to call it spaghetti marrow as in my child head squash was a drink! It is gorgeous stuff. Highly recommended.
