This is carnival squash. Probably the coolest looking of the squash….and yes the delicata is probably the best tasting. What do you do with these things though? Same as the rest of the squash. Yes, their seeds are edible as well.
1 Carnival Squash
1 TBS Butter
1 TBS Olive Oil
Wash the squash. Cut and remove the seeds…save the seeds as you can bake and eat them too. Melt butter in the microwave or better yet as the oven is warming to 350F set the butter in a bowl on top of the oven…it will melt in a hurry. Mix the olive oil and butter. Brush the oil and butter on to the squash. Place the squash face down on a foil covered baking sheet. Bake for 20-30 minute or until a fork can easily pierce the squash. Remove from the oven and use a fork and spoon to remove the meat of the squash from the skin. Done. FYI my one year old LOVES this stuff and he ate most of it.
