I purchased an acorn squash at the farmer's market quite a while ago and its skin was initially dark green with a small patch of orange. I have been keeping it in my pantry. Over time the skin has turned completely orange like a ripe pumpkin. I am assuming that the squash is ripening as well but it appears unchanged except for the color.
Is my squash still good and can I use it like I would a normal green acorn squash?
