      I had some leftover mashed squash for a soup recipe I made a couple of days and thought the maple syrup would add a special zing to the squash. I was surprised that I didn't think it added much flavor. The squash was good, but I don't think it tasted all that different than plain buttered squash (which I do really like!). I used pure maple syrup, cut the recipe in half, but didn't cut down the maple in an effort to get more maple flavor.

      Simple comfort food that tastes great. I made a slimmer version with light butter and reduced sugar maple syrup for a more point friendly side. Paired with a spicy roasted chicken - the combination was rather pleasing and comforting on a fall night. Thanks!
