I had never seen one before until I visited my local a href="http://www.fairwaymarket.com/store-woodland-park/" target="blank"bFairway Market/b/a. They have such a wide variety of produce, amongst other things as I recently mentioned before in my a href="http://carriesexperimentalkitchen.blogspot.com/2012/11/rosemary-roasted-yellow-carrots.html" target="blank"bRosemary Roasted Yellow Carrot/bs/a recipe. I loved the flavor of this squash, especially tossed with the maple syrup and fresh sage. And, besides a little odd look from Gabrielle because she first thought I had roasted peaches (hmmm....now there's an idea!), the family and I loved it. I just wish I had purchased another one it was so good!  I would double the recipe if you are making this for more than two people. /spanbr /span class="Apple-style-span" style="color: #073763;"br //spanbr /div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-9OlP6AV-D4/UJrxsUp1ZoI/AAAAAAAAEzE/Miygs-JIS0/s1600/maple+sage+roasted+delicata.jpg" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"img border="0" height="267" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-9OlP6AV-D4/UJrxsUp1ZoI/AAAAAAAAEzE/Miygs-JIS0/s320/maple+sage+roasted+delicata.jpg" width="320" //a/divspan class="Apple-style-span" style="color: #073763;"buMaple & Sage Roasted Delicata/u/b/spanbr /span class="Apple-style-span" style="color: #073763; font-family: inherit;"1 Delicata, peeled/spanbr /span class="Apple-style-span" style="color: #073763; font-family: inherit;"1 tbsp.
