if you have never tried a delicata squash, i urge you to do so. the flavor is subtle and sweet and so very delicious. we grew some this year (in the new squash pit) and our four little plants took off running, literally::
bake at 400 degrees for about a half hour. as soon as they feel nice and soft when squeezed, they are done. be sure to keep an eye on the water in your pan. once scorched, twice shy. then just a little butter, some flaky salt and a spoon. i was never a squash lover. at all. quite the opposite. then along came delicata. and the rest is history.
