DELICATA SQUASH RINGS
These take just 10 to 12 minutes to cook and when finished are glazed with a rich caramel coating from the natural sugars in the squash.
Wash the squash. Slice off the ends and scoop out the seeds with a teaspoon. Do not peel, the skin is edible. Cut the squash into rings, about 1/3 inch thick. Heat the oil in a wide skillet, add the squash, and fry over medium heat until richly colored on the bottom, about 6 minutes. Turn and cook on the second side until tender, about 6 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Drizzle with a little olive oil or butternut squash oil.
