Acorn squash is a type of winter squash, the kind with hard, thick skins. It is dark green with orange spots, and is shaped like an acorn. Although you can sometimes find it (as well as other winter squash) all year long, it's really at its peak from early fall through the winter.

If acorn squash is not available, you can use any other type of winter squash such as butternut, hubbard, or pumpkin.
