Golden Apple Squashes

It looks like I’ve been growing oranges on my plot. I wish. No, these are little squashes called Golden Apple. They may be small, but so prolific. What to do with them all?

I’ve so far made some soup by roasted them with carrots, apples and potatoes. It’s just a pity that the weather has suddenly gone tropical and is more salad than soup weather, but it’ll go in the freezer.

I’m keen to try out this pancake recipe from Allotment2Kitchen, and I quite fancy trying some stuffed squashes as these would be the perfect size for it. Other than that I don’t know yet, I’ll let you know what I come up with.


  1. Many years ago, as a teen, I lived a while with my aunt and her family in South Africa. Every Sunday, with our roast, we had a vegetable called gem squash, halved and roasted and served with a nob of butter. It looks very similar, though green, to those little beauties you’ve grown. Across all those years I can taste them now. Lucky you.


    • Hi Carl, that sounds delicious. I think I’ll be eating most of mine that way. The simplest way is usually the best. I hope they’re as nice as your aunts were.


  2. I sadly did not get to grow these beauties this year, yours look really good. Hopefully next year I will get back to my growing antics and learn to love growing veg again, its been a bit up and down in the past few years. I hope you enjoy the pancakes. I have picked up two little squashes from a farmers market and am hoping to roast and stuff them.
