DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat an oven to 400 degrees.
  • Cut the squash in half lengthwise. With a spoon scoop out the seeds and discard. Place the squash cut side down in a shallow baking dish. Add 1 cup water.
  • Bake squash in the oven until tender and a knife can be easily inserted into the thickest part of the squash; 45 to 50 minutes depending on size.
  • Cool until it can be handled, approximately 15 minutes. Remove the skin and discard.
  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the milk until the milk is hot, about 1 minute. Be careful not to burn! Stir in the grated ginger with a fork.
  • Place the squash in a bowl and mash with a potato masher until smooth.
  • Add the milk-ginger mixture to the mashed squash. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Place in a serving bowl and serve immediately. Garnish with chives or dill, if desired.
