Squash! Butternut, Pumpkin, to Zucchini!

Butternut, Pumpkin, to Zucchini! If suffering from dysentery, eczema, and edema you can benefit from eating pumpkin. It helps regulate blood sugar balance and benefits the pancreas (great for those with diabetes and hypoglycemia.) Bronchial asthma and cough are also improved due to pumpkin's ability to promote the discharge of mucus from the lungs, bronchi, and throat. Ahh Pumpkin or Butternut soup! Try applying the fresh pulp to burns, said to cool and relieve pain. Pumpkin, and especially pumpkin seeds, destroy intestinal worms, too. So don`t throw them away check out my recipe for roasting them. Disclaimer: Statements contained herein have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.

This process is so very easy. No peeling! Take a look! Squash is great for pureeing, roasting and baking. Once cooked and pureed, it can be used in soups, main dishes, vegetable side dishes, even breads, muffins, custards and pies. The skin has many nutrients so go ahead and use it. Or peel and discard. But you will never know it's in the puree. Dress any cooked winter squash with butter and herbs, a cream sauce, cheese sauce, maple syrup, candied ginger, spices and or nuts.

I've made this soup fast, tasty, and easy! It 's creamy fruity with a slight kick from the ginger. A real comfort soup. I don't peel my squash just blend it up smooth in a vita mix or any high powered blender. You never know it's in there. But your body will love you for it! This I tried to keep low in fat and sugar by using low fat milk and pears in a light syrup. In the picture I garnished with recipe #50958 and fresh ripe pears slices.

This I came up with a combo of a couple of recipes. Hey sweet potato will be an other good one to use in here to replace the butternut. Go easy adding wet ingredients or if the dough is to sticky go ahead and use a little more flour. Give a basket full of these for a house warming gift. Method for pureeing butternut Recipe #194908

You Can slice after cooked for appetizers. Serve as a side dish. Or just make a meal out of it with a green salad. For vegetarians, skip the sausage and use vegetable stock instead of chicken stock.

(Recipe from Cooking Light magazine, December) This looks to good not to make.Note: To roast spices, heat the whole spices in a dry pan to release their natural volatile oils and bring out their full aroma and flavor. Use a small, heavy skillet. Add the whole spices (roasting ground spices tends to turn them bitter, so is best avoided) and place over a gentle heat. Shake the pan, or stir with a wooden spatula to keep the spices on the move, and toast gently for 2 to 3 minutes. Some spices, including mustard and poppy seeds, "pop" when they are ready; others darken. The essential sign is that the spice becomes aromatic and smells toasty. Tip into a bowl to cook before grinding - preferably with a mortar and pestle. Remember, a coffee grinder can crush most spices, especially tough ones like cinnamon and cloves; clean the grinder afterward by grinding a small piece of bread or a couple of tablespoons of raw rice.
