If tackling a winter squash intimidates you in the least, you are going to be very happy to meet the Delicata Squash.
Delicata squash is one of the easiest and most manageable winter squash to work with and is arguably as delicious (if not more so) than a butternut squash.
The beauty of a delicata squash is that it’s small, does not need to be peeled, and cooks up quickly.
And the flavor, oh! the flavor…
Sweet, nutty, creamy, deliciousness!
But don’t thank me yet.
First watch the video and then go buy one, cook it, eat it, and then come back to give me some cyber love down in the comments below:).
