    Pianolady's Note:

    This is a delicious butternut squash recipe from Ina Garten / The Barefoot Contessa. We really enjoy this during the holidays. It is best when the squash is cut in medium to large chunks so that the outside gets a maple-flavored crust, and the inside stays soft and delicious.

      This was delicious! Please be aware though, if you have never dealt with butternut squash (like me!), that you should wear plastic gloves when peeling or dicing. The squash made my hands swell and peel like acid had touched them. Apparently this is common with uncooked butternut squash. The recipe turned out great though and I will make it again (with the gloves this time!)

      Being the daughter of a vegetable farmer I would say I have enjoyed my fair share of squash but this wasn't the best. Butternut squash really doesn't need to be peeled, it really is a total waste of your time. Mine didn't really caramelize, but I know that has to do with proportions so I am assuming I was a little off with the butter. My advice to others would be leave the skin on and add a touch of a spice of your choosing.

      Whenever I make squash in this manner, I always balance the wonderful sweetness with a little cayenne pepper and often some walnuts. Yum
