My squash-neutral partner just discovered delicata squash and has been raving about it for two weeks-- since he tasted it at a friend's house. Finally, my market had some in stock and I bought a couple and gave them a try. Oh, they are GOOD!
If you like winter squash, but haven't tried these, look for them. They're capsule-shaped, pale orange with bright orange and green lateral stripes-- extremely pretty. They taste a little like butternut squash, but sweeter and milder, with flavor overtones of chestnut and something-maybe-apricot.
We just baked them and lightly salted them. Next time I'll skip the salt. I'm normally a squash-seasoning minimalist, but boy, are these good without any gilding at all.
I've been pimping them to family members and friends all day. :) Thought I'd share with y'all, too.
