What is a Hubbard Squash (and What Do I Do with It?)

  Have you heard of a squash called blue squash? This squash is a pale gray/blue in color, and picked from the garden in British Columbia, Canada yesterday afternoon. It is large in the middle, and tapering from both ends. I'm just curious what kind of squash this is, so I can decide how to cook.

  Sounds like a Hubbard squash to us. They range from big to enormous, have a blue/gray skin, and taper at the ends. Like all winter squash, they have an inedible skin, large, fully developed seeds that must be scooped out, and a dense flesh. They are generally peeled and boiled, cut up and roasted, or cut small and steamed or sautéed.
