Maple Squash


5 lb. butternut squash, peeled, seeded and cut into 1 inch pieces
1/3 c. brown sugar
1 3/4 tsp salt
2 Tbsp. Maple Balsamic
3 Tbsp. unsalted butter, in pieces
1/2 tsp. black pepper
Roasted Pumpkin Seed Oil


Simmer squash in water with 1 teaspoon salt in a 5-quart pot (water will not cover squash), covered, until squash is very tender, about 15 minutes.

Reserve 1/2 cup cooking liquid, then drain squash in a colander. Dress squash with salt, Maple Balsamic, brown sugar, butter and pepper.

--Alternatively, puree in batches in a food processor until smooth, adding reserved cooking liquid if puree is too thick.--

Before serving, drizzle with Roasted Pumpkin Seed Oil.
