I forgot to post this review! I followed the recipe as written. I was excited because I had delicata squash to use. I did not peel the squashes. I'm not sure how I feel about leaving the peelings in. They are edible but have a crisp texture that isn't so nice on the palate. It does look pretty though with the peelings on. So if you are going for presentation, leave them on. Also I think I stirred it too much. It made everything mush together and lose some of the presentation. The flavors were really good and not too sweet which is what I liked best.
