Delicata are much smaller than most winter squash, and are a very easy to clean, cut and cook. The peel is quite thin and actually edible. Because of its thin skin, however, it does not store as long or as easily as other winter squash. The flesh is sweet, nutty, and a bit drier than other squash with a distinct corn-like flavor. It is particularly delicious roasted with butter or stuffed and baked.
