Maple & Spice Delicata SquashThere are many ways in which you can serve the squash and ice cream. The squash is softer if left in large pieces while roasting, and like chewy candy if sliced thinly for roasting. It’s delicious however you choose to cut it up.

Scrub the skins of two small delicata squash with a vegetable brush to remove any soil or spots. Cut in half and scoop out the seeds. Do not remove the skins. On this winter squash, they are edible and nutritious. Slice or dice the squash to desired thickness and place in a glass baking dish.
Blend the following ingredients together and pour over the squash:
Serve slightly warm with ice cream.
