Delicata Squash

Delicata squash is one of the yummiest, nuttiest squashes around. Here's some ideas for what to do with it... P.S. you can eat the skin!


  • Delicata squash


Delicata fries...

  1. Split delicata squash in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. Split halves into wedges, arrange skin-side down on a baking sheet. Season with salt, fresh lime juice and (smoked) chili powder and roast in a 350⁰ degree oven until tender/crisp and golden brown, about 20-30 minutes.

Maple Delicata rings...

  1. Rinse the squash thoroughly then slice each squash into 1/2- inch rings, and remove the pulp from each ring with a spoon or paring knife. Place rings in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Toss the rings with olive oil, maple syrup and salt. Lay on a foil lined baking sheet and bake at 400⁰ for about 40 minutes until tender and caramalized.

Simply Baked

  1. Cut squash in half lengthwise. Put a pat of butter and a sprinkling of salt and cinnamon on each half and bake at 350⁰ until tender.
