I have been getting a lot of questions on how to prepare squash. I love the big banana squash the best so I am going to focus on a basic recipe for preparing and baking this delectable beauty. If you have grown one yourself. First thing is to wipe off the dirt and clean the outside skin surface. It stays on while you bake and dirt is not really that tasty or good for you. The next step is to take a big sharp knife and a good sized cutting board and cut the squash into small sections. It will make it easier to cut up. Invert the section you have just created. Cut into smaller pieces about 2 x 3 piece. After cutting all the pieces into smaller sections. Take a large spoon and scrape the seed membrane out. Prepare a roasting pan with about 2 inches of water and place the squash pieces skin side down. Arrange a layer of squash in the pan. Now this is my secret ingredient: Sprinkle about a teaspoon of brown sugar onto each piece. Cover the roaster either with the lid or tin foil. Bake at 375 degrees for about 1-2 hours until squash is fork tender. Serve with butter, salt and pepper.
