Baked Kabocha Fries

I certainly could have named this recipe something like baked pumpkin fries, but I chose to be more specific to eliminate confusion when it comes to selecting a pumpkin to bake.

Kabocha is a variety of winter squash (pumpkin). They belong to the Ayote family that includes: hubbard, buttercup, Hokkaido and the 28 different varieties of Kabocha. The Kabocha pumpkin is ideal for baking/roasting because of the dry flesh and sweet flavors reminiscent of chestnuts or potatoes that intensify when cooked.

Butternut squash and the bright red/orange Hokkaido also work well if you keep the skin intact
