What to do with all that squash?

So they were in season in November and you bought them.  Beautiful, each gorgeous little squash had a place of importance in your kitchen and got everyone in the holiday spirit.  But now it’s time to say goodbye.  Believe it or not, you may have overlooked one of the easiest side dishes in your kitchen.  For small winter squash such as Delicata, Kabocha, and Acorn, it’s as easy as 1, 2, 3

  1. Wash each squash with a scrub brush.
  2. Halve, scoop out seeds, cut into manageable chunks (no need to peel).
  3. Lay out on a greased cookie sheet, drizzle with olive oil, liberally sprinkle with salt, and bake in a preheated oven at 400 degrees until you can pierce them with a fork (about 20-25 minutes).

Ready for the oven, this process took only minutes!


Roasted and ready to eat…skin and all.
