Sunday Lunch


These lovely Delica squashes from Seeds of Italy are wonderful Winter keepers.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          
 But this one didn't keep, I just had to have it for Sunday lunch yesterday.  This was a trailing squash that I trained to climb up the outside of a shed on a trellis.
Beautiful firm, sweet flesh which went down a treat. I have lots more to enjoy throughout the Winter.

Mark, I steamed it. The skin is quite tender and extremely edible.
