Expert Tips

  • tip 1
    Depending on where you live,varieties of squash can vary. Two acron squash (1 to 1 1/2 pounds each) can be substituted for the buttercup squash. Certain flavors are destined for one another, and so it is with grilled pork chops, as pork roast or a pork tenderloin-any one of them would be perfect to go along with this sweetly spiced squash.
