Gem squash falls into the summer squash category, but gem squashes can vary greatly in terms of how thick their skin is but a function of how early or late they were picked. In the UK, however, they live up to their summer squash description and the skin is often soft enough to eat once cooked. You can peel and quarter the gems, scoop out the seeds and roast with olive oil. Alternatively, it can be steamed in two halves and then remove seeds and replace with a filling of vegetables mixed with pesto.
