Delicata SquashPosted: October 22, 2010
Why, yes, I AM proud of this photo, thank you. No, I don’t have any formal training, but I’m flattered that you would ask. Um, my mom’s old canon powershot A something that she gave me when I lost mine. No, it’s not expensive. Not at all.
Anyway, in other news: we still have a pile of delicata squash from our garden. It was only last winter that I tasted delicata for the first time. Now I think it may be my favorite fall/ winter produce. They’re super easy to prepare: just cut lengthwise (which is much easier to do than with other squash), seed, rub with a little olive oil and roast in a covered dish for 30 min. The flesh turns into an amazing sweet light golden custard all on its own. Amazing! Plus it makes perfect baby food.
Another bonus: Delicata are heirlooms so we can save seed for next year.
