A CookTale

Comes October and we yearn for delicious Delicata Squash roasted with Maple Syrup Butter floating in its hollow. It likes a long slow roast to achieve its mouth melting excellence.
The entire family of Winter Squash reacts exactly the same, and are welcome on chilly Fall evenings.


A Delicata Squash (cut horizontally in half,seeds & pulp removed)
2 or 3 TB of Butter
Maple Syrup (to taste)
Kosher Salt & Pepper (Lemon Pepper preferred)


1. Fill each prepared Squash half with the Salt & Pepper, a TB of Maple Syrup & a 1/2 TB of Butter.

2. Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Place the Squash in an oven proof deep sided dish, place in the heated oven & roast for 35 to 45 minutes, or until the meat of the Squash in perfectly tender when pierced with the tip of a knife.

3. Remove, allow to cool for a few minutes, retain the Butter/Maple Syrup in the hollow of the Squash. Plate & serve.
