Skin on delicata squash is edible (and a bit crunchy when baked, softer when boiled).
This recipe also works well with any variety of squashes.
- 1 Delicata Winter Squash
- Olive oil – 1 Teaspoon
- 2 tablespoons of butter
- pinch of salt and pepper
Wash Squash until clean. Dry squash with a towel and set aside. Cover baking sheet with foil. Place 1 teaspoon of Olive oil in your hands (already washed, clean, and dry hands – please). Rub squash with oily hands until very lightly coated. Place squash on foil lined baking sheet. DO NOT Peel, Puncture or Poke your squash. Bake at 350° until squash is fragrant and dents with a wooden spoon handle, approximately 45 minutes to an hour (depending on the size of your squash). Squash will usually brown slightly.
