First Sweet Dumpling Squash of 2017

I bought this yesterday at the grocery store. They were in a small pile off to the side in the produce section. When I check out, the cashier usually asks, “What do you do with this?” This is what I do with it … I eat it!

Sweet dumpling squashes are small, about the size of a grapefruit. And they’re hard, like pumpkin hard. I cooked this at 320 degrees for 1.5 hours. But when it’s done, it’s so soft you can even eat the skin, which I did. The last 2 or 3 years I either couldn’t find them or if I did they were old and stringy inside. This was perfect. I wish I had bought more than one.

    That’s great!!! The UK chef Jamie Oliver says you can eat the skins of most winter squashes as long as you cut them small and/or puree the well cooked squash!!!
