    mersaydees's Note:

    Based on a recipe from Cook’s Country magazine, October/November 2005. The intro to the recipe advises, “Don’t mix the brown sugar and butter ahead of time; it will crystallize and separate. Butternut squash can be stringy when undercooked, so if you’re not sure, err on the side of overcooking.” I’ve included instructions for cooking small winter squash, such as acorn, delicata, and sweet dumpling since they cook more quickly and require less glaze.

      I become excited about making butternut squash with the arrival of fall. Or maybe, it's that I become excited about fall because of butternut squash. Lovely dish. Made for A-NZ #47 Recipe Tag.

      Usually in the past I have always baked my butternut squash in water, so this technique was totally new to me. I added some nutmeg to the brown sugar butter solution. It was loved by the whole family. Made for Veg 'N Swap #28.

      I kind of feel like I was cheating by tagging this recipe. I've been baking squash like this since forever without the broiler step. That part was a new twist and I believe I like it better than the plain baking. This was my grandmothers favorite way with "hard squash" and nobody ever turned it down. I added a 1/2 tsp of cinnamon because I love it in the mix and used Splenda brown in half the amount ask for. The Delicata I used came out a bit black on the top edges but that didn't hurt the overall outcome of pure deliciousness. If you have any "squash squimmies" in your family try this on them, if it doesn't win them over they are truly a lost cause in the squash department.
