Organic Delicata Squash Fries

Everyone loves a comeback story. You may have seen this golden squash with green and golden pinstripes popping up in the produce section and restaurant menus and thought to yourself, what is a delicata? This heirloom squash almost disappeared in the early 1900s, only to make its way back in style as people are rediscovering the rich, creamy taste of delicata.

“Delicata Squash is a beautiful and delicious veggie that has been confined to culinary circles for some time. Now we’ve figured out how to make it available for everyone to enjoy!” said Mason Arnold, founder of Cece’s® Veggie Co.

Delicata squash is also known as Bohemian, peanut, or sweet potato squash. Favored for its creamy, yellow flesh and crispy, edible skin, this veggie makes every day feel like it’s Fry-day! When roasted, the smile-shaped squash slices turn caramelized and sweet. The flavor is often compared to pumpkin, sweet potato, or sweet-corn, with a savory or nutty taste.

Low in calories and high in fiber, delicata is an excellent source of potassium, vitamins A and C so you can enjoy veggie fries without sacrificing nutrition. The scalloped edges on delicata make for an attractive way to spruce up any dish with veggies that taste as delicious as they look.

“I’ve always loved fries, but never liked how alternative veggie fries are filled with binders and processed ingredients. When I first tried delicata squash fries it was a game-changer. Full of flavor, they’re simple to cook and so healthy. Delicata Fries are addictingly good and will be your new go-to any time you want fries” said Arnold

Cece’s® Delicata Squash Fries are made with 100% organic delicata squash, fresh-cut into crescent moon-shaped fries. With such a naturally sweet and delicious flavor, it’s time to say bye to boring veggie fries! Simply roast, sauté or steam for the perfect finger food and complement to any meal. Delicata Fries will be available in select Costco stores beginning in January.
