Winter Squash

Yesterday I went to our local Super Wal-mart and as I was browsing the produce section I came across several winter squash that I had never heard of before. Curious, I pick them up and began reading the label and was a bit shocked to see the carb count. I have never thought of winter sqush being a carb bargain but all of these sqush showed 8 net carbs per cup. Being the inquisitive soul that I am I bought 2 of each of these squash to try. Their names were: Delicata, Sweet Dumpling, Golden Nugget, and Kabocha Squash.
Following are their pictures in the order listed.

Today I made the the first 2 in the list and was amazed at how much both the Sweet Dumpling and the Delicata tasted like potatoes. I cut them in half, scooped out the seed and microwaved them cutside down in 1/4 cup water for about 7 min. on high. Their size made them very easy to cut and both had relatively few amount of seeds.

When done, the pulp scooped right out of the skin and I mashed and buttered them with a fork and could not believe my taste buds. My DW melted a little chedder cheese on top of hers and gave me a taste which was even better.

I have not tried the other 2 yet but when I do I will let you know what they are like.

If you can afford the 8 carbs and you have been wanting something potatoe-like, I recommend that if you see these in the store.......you try 1 or 2 of these squash.
