Some varieties of squash contain more moisture than others. If you prefer a dryer squash, you can remove some of the moisture from the squash
before cooking. To remove some of the moisture, sprinkle the raw flesh with salt and place cavity side down on a couple of layers of paper towels. Allow the squash to stand in this manner for 20 to 30 minutes. The salt will draw the moisture out and the paper towel will absorb it. Rinse the squash with cold water before cooking.
