I’m not trying to exaggerate, but delicata squash is my new favorite food.

Pinterest, Instagram, Food Network — I had seen delicata squash before, but I had held out on it. Having never had it, I was making the wrong assumption that its taste was bland and it’s skin would be impossible to cut through (looking at you, butternut squash). I was wrong. SO wrong.

However, while feeling adventurous on one Sunday afternoon last fall (as if tackling Trader Joe’s on a Sunday afternoon isn’t adventurous enough), I decided to put one in my grocery cart to take home and see what the hype was all about. Needless to say, I now fully understand the hype, have openly joined in on said hype, and can attest that delicata squash is neither bland nor hard to cut…it’s actually the exact opposite! It strikes the perfect balance between a sweet and almost nutty flavor, and has a skin so delicate that you can actually eat!

I’m at the point now where I will literally look for ways to bring up delicata squash in daily conversation so that I can rave on and on about it…..if there was an MLM company based around delicata, I’d be at the top of the pyramid 😉
