Squash, Delicata 1 lb approx EACH


Delicata squash is know as the "sweet potato squash" for it's brown sugar flavour.
No need to peel the skin, its edible, simply roast with salt, pepper and olive oil and away you go!

Delicata squash, when cooked, is sweet, rich, and moist, much like a sweet potato. The thin, smooth skin has a creamy yellow base with green or orange, vertical stripes. The flesh is firm, thick, fine-grained, and yellow to orange with a central, hollow cavity containing stringy pulp and many flat, hard, cream-colored seeds.

Delicata squash will keep for several weeks at room temperature when stored in a cool and dark place.

Delicata squash is extremely versatile and is easily prepared as its thin skin can be consumed with the flesh after cooking and does not need to be removed. Delicata squash is best suited for cooked applications such as baking, roasting, steaming, boiling, and sautéing. Favored in the kitchen for its thin skin, Delicata squash is easy to slice, and the skin is also edible when cooked and does not need to be peeled before consumption. Delicata squash holds its shape well through cooking, making it an excellent choice for stuffing with grains, meats, or cheese, and baking and serving as a side dish. Delicata squash can also be sliced into rings or cubes and used in an endless array of recipes such as tacos, soups, salads, gratins, sandwiches, risotto, pizza, and pasta. Delicata squash pairs well with apple, pear, fennel, kale, spinach, arugula, garlic, shallot, parsley, sage, lemon, maple syrup, butter, toasted pecans, hazelnuts, and walnuts, quinoa, eggs, white beans, dried cranberries, cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar, Italian sausage, ground beef, roasted poultry, feta, blue, parmesan, and mozzarella cheeses.
