Squash

Deep-fried squash chips are surprisingly good. A little bit of salt and it’s wonderful. Even with a bit of the stringy inside bits… That stuff crisps up really nicely.

I’ve never been a big fan of squash, but I probably didn’t have the right sort of experiences. Not like a squash-tasting party.

I really liked the Delicata squash. The Butternut squash was really good as well. Buttercup squash, I wasn’t quite as fond of, although I admit is was better steamed than baked.

Baked squash seeds were nice as well. Again, the Delicata wins out. They had a surprising sweetness to them.

And you know, puréed butternut squash with maple syrup and blueberries makes a really nice dessert. I’d never have guessed.

    Meant to post this earlier today, but had a Mac moment (stupid keystrokes!).

    In any event, was this a public squash thing? Any online presence?

    I ask because Robin has recently decided that squash isn’t half bad (much as I did just a few years back). With that being the case, I could Google, but where’s the fun in that? :-)

    [Besides, something to link to for her would be cool. I’ll foward the post at any rate.]

    It’s just something Ellen and a friend decided to do.

    There’s no link or anything, but I did find a squash site that helped me spell “Delicata.” It was kinda late to go hunting around for Wikipedia links like I’d normally do.

    Squash? I love squash! Mmmmm….

    Happy Thanksgiving to you too, Squirrel! Only, y’all celebrated that already, didn’t you? You’re smart enough not to wait until it is freezing cold out…

    :P
