Funny how our tastes change, I hated this stuff as a child, now I really
Wintersquash is really yummy just steamed and mashed, add some orange juice
concentrate and grated ginger if you like, or just a bit of salt for the
basic. You can steam the stuff and freeze in ziplock bags, use for soups
"Cream" of Winter Squash soup.
This is how I do it, more of an idea than a recipe, you really can't hurt
Peel and cube the squash. Boil until very soft. Let cool a bit, then puree
in a blender or food processor. Add fatfree soy milk to achieve desired
consistency. Season to your taste. We like a bit of medium dry sherry,
grated ginger, and maybe some grated orange peel. If you like it sweeter,
cook a peeled apple witwh the squash and puree it all together.
Delicata Sqush, I think I have the name right, these are the small, almost
single serving size ones. I just wash, stick them with a knife a few times
as I do baked potatoes, then bake or microwave until tender, let cool just a
bit, then cut in half, scrap out seeds, sprinkle with salt and critus
pepper. Delish, a real treat!
Now that I am in the "beautiful leaves country", autumn is my favorite
season. I really cherish it. Lived most of my live in southern California,
so glad to be in central New York and eagerly awaiting fall.
