    Delicata squash is boiled until tender, then mashed with honey, dark brown soft sugar, cinnamon and allspice. This sweet side dish goes particularly well with spicy food.

    Delicata squash is our favorite squash. This recipe is similiar to the way I prepare it. I usually cook my squah in the microwave after poking holes in it with a fork. Quick and easy.  -  16 Nov 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was terrible. I had to force both my daughter and my husband to eat it. Maybe if it had a little butter added it would have been better. It was so...paste like. I will never make this again. Sorry.  -  07 Jun 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
