We eat a lot of butternut squash.
In part, I suppose that's because we grow a lot of butternut squash. This year's crop was small and strange compared to last year. And by small I mean only 20 squash. Well, last year we grew about 50. But strange because half of them looked like this.
No that is NOT a pumpkin, it's a butternut squash. Really. Maybe we (our garden and the bees) created a new variety. Let's call them butterkins. Or maybe pumpnuts?
Anywho, I baked one up the other night and it tasted like squash. I'm not sure why I was worried, since anything tastes good with enough butter and brown sugar.
Which is exactly how I served this squash. I baked it up as usual and then pureed it with butter, a little apple cider and brown sugar. But to send it right over the top I made a butter brown sugar syrup with the help of some cinnamon and apple cider.
Vegetables. Yup. I can make those taste like dessert!
