Thanks guys! i might be boring but no one has a clue here
Ryan........check out Vegetable Spaghetti Squash. If it is this one, it won't be any good for making Pumpkin Pie.
Unfortunately, unless it rings a bell with what you were given, you aren't going to know until you cut it open. Still very edible but no pie I'm afraid
Phillipa can I ask another quick question what's the difference inside between a squash and a pumpkin this family is very confusing they all look the same
As I understand it, summer squashes are used under ripe, don't have very hard skins and don't store as well as hard skinned winter squash. Pumpkins are a type of winter squash, but are usually orange and ribbed.. Other than that, they are the same family. I think there is a certain amount of overlap.
