Delicious Delicata

Did you know that you can eat the skin of delicata squash? Absolutely! Delicata is one our favorite easy go-to sides. And roasted delicata is positively addictive! Wash your (organic) delicata, and cut the ends. Standing the squash up on one of the cut ends, cut lengthwise down the middle. Scoop out and compost the seeds, and slice each half crosswise, as thin as possible. Toss slices with olive oil, and lay out on a cookie sheet.  Roast at 400, checking every 5 minutes until just toasty (carmelized). Season to taste with salt and pepper. We served ours with spiced red cabbage and pastured pork chops from our friends at Colvin Ranch.
