Beer Battered Delicata Squash Chips

Fall squash are some of my favorite ingredients to work with.  Spanning from soups to stew, roasted to mashed, there is no shortage of preparations.  So one afternoon, I was looking at a few delicata squash on my counter and asked a very simple question.  Why not fried?

My general philosophy (one of many) in life is: fried = good and beer battered + fried = better.

Fried Cucuzza Squash

You go in your your local grocery store and see a 2 foot long squash.  It is thin, green and says “cucuzza.”  If you had Italian grandparents growing up you might be familiar with this food.  I called my mom for suggestions on preparation and was told when she was a kid her family would dip in a light batter and fry them up.  Below is my easy to prepare recipe for Cucuzza squash.
