Delicata squash is delicious any way you slice it. Delicata, acorn, and butternut are three of my favorite varieties of squash. For delicata, wash it, cut it in half from top to bottom, then scoop out the seeds from each half with a spoon and slice into half-inch pieces. This squash is delicious simply steamed in a little water. Contributed by Meg Wolff, from A Life in Balance,* ©2010, Down East Books.
