Baked Delicata Squash With Lime Butter

Baked Delicata Squash With Lime Butter created by Derf2440

I spotted these colorful squash at a farm stand in Vermont last weekend - I brought them home and scoured the Internet to find out what to do with them! I found the following recipe on whatscookingamerica.net. The squash turned out to be delicious, with delicate, edible skin. The tangy/spicy butter topping complemented the mild squash perfectly.

    I love the lime and chili flavor!

    Way too much butter. I think that 1 TBSP would have been fine. Otherwise the taste was really good.
