Squash......

Postby Shalimar » Mon Apr 20, 2009 9:47 pm

Hi all I have a bit of a dilemma :oops: .

At the moment I have a bee in my bonnet about trying new veggies or re-visiting ones that I thought previously I had hated.
I have some squash I want to steam. My question is do you peel it or do you not??

Thanks in advance :D .

I ended up peeling it and it was nice. Does it make much difference leaving the skin on?

calorie wise it doesnt, but just under the skin is where loads of nutrients are kept so peeling is takes away alot of good stuff :)
