Notes on Delicata squash…
Delicata squash tastes like butternut, but it is a little smaller and a little sweeter. The rind is soft and edible, which makes it easier to prep and cook. All you need to do is scoop the seeds out, slice, and bake. Slice and mix with some olive oil, brown sugar, and maple syrup and roast until tender. You can add a little cinnamon for a more nuanced taste.
