     Delicata Squash can easily be pureed if you require a pureed texture. Scrape out the cooked squash and add to a food processor. Pulse until smooth, adding either cream or butter to thin the puree.

    Delicata Squash is a great source of Vitamin A.

    Vitamin A is important to maintain normal vision and to maintain a health immune system.

    Delicata Squash can last up to 3 months when stored in a dry, cool place.
