SWEET BUTTERNUT RECIPES


BUTTERNUT SQUASH Baked with Honey

This is as basic and easy as you can possibly get.
Wash butternut and slice longwise into two halves. Place face down in a shallow pan with about 1/4 cup of water. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for about 30-40 minutes, depending on the size of your squash. When you can stick a fork through the skin, it is done. Remove from the over, turn squash over and score the flesh with a fork. Drizzle with honey, sprinkle with a little mace, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, if you wish. Place back into the oven for about 10 minutes. Serve.
