I'm planning on picking this squash within the next few days and I just wanted to make sure it looked ripe. What do you think?
This is my first year growing Delicata. We have had a couple of them and they are yummy. I don't think I will save seed though as we have other varieties in the same species and surely with all my bees we would have hybrids. Who knows the hybrids may be good too, but you never know what you will get.Delicata is my absolute favorite squash! Beautiful to look at and yummy to eat.
Another OT -- I'll have to slap myself sillyIOW if they are working squash that is all they will work on that trip into the field.
My wife prepared it, but I know she pealed it and then cut it into chunks. she then boiled them. Once they were boiled she mashed them like potatoes. I'm not exactly sure what she used for seasoning but it tasted like cinnamon and butter, maybe a little milk.How do you guys prepare/eat squash?
