Winter Squash

Squash, Sweet Potato, and Corn Chowder

Squash and corn chowder

Squash, corn, and sweet potato combine to make a hearty chowder that’s especially perfect for fall. Though this admittedly involves a bit of preparation, none of it is difficult. It’s a great soup to make on a quiet Sunday — you’ll be happy to come home to it during the week! It’s delicious with fresh cornbread. It’s also the kind of soup you won’t mind making an extra effort to make for holiday meals like Thanksgiving. more→

Baked Delicate Delicata

Roasted Delicata Squash

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.
