Argonaut squash

stan_ia_z4(z4 ia)October 7, 2004

I had a bummper harvest of Argonaut squash. The cylindrical fruits are over 28 inches and weigh over 30 pounds. They are similar to the Waltham butternut. They are a bit watery. Is there a way to cook them to reduce the moisture content?

You can peel, then slice these and bake in a single layer on a buttered pan (I use a couple cookie sheets) in a moderate oven, about 10-15 minutes per side depending on your pan and your oven. If you butter and season with salt/pepper or brown sugar, put that on before baking.

Roasting them with the cut side up usually does the trick also.
