To cook any winter squash, preheat the oven to 375. Slice the squash in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. Place the squash facedown in a baking dish, and fill about ¼” of the dish with water. Cook for 45-60 minutes, depending on the size of the squash. Remove and cool, and then peel out the innards from the skin (except for Delicata squash, whose skin can & should be eaten). Squash can be eaten alone, with brown sugar and honey, or added to other dishes (try it as a pizza topping).

  1. Yum. I also bake my winter squash whole, uncut. They are NEVER dried out and I can cut them in serving-size rings or lengthwise. Seed scooping, butter and other yummies need to wait till after the bake, but often I eat as-is for its full flavor. Hey, I think I got that tip from you!
