Does anyone have the recipe for the delicious butternut squash + maple syrup that was served in the crockpot? Does anyone remember who brought the dish to the potluck on Saturday at Rancheria? I'd appreciate the recipe, so I can make it for Thanksgiving. Thanks so much!
I made the Butternut squash. I'd be happy to give you the recipe but I didn't really follow a recipe. I never do. I look at about 3 or 4 and then make my own from them.
Because I never made it in such a large quantity or in a crock pot before...I THINK I steamed the cut up squash first to get it warm and then put it in the crock put - as I didn't know how long it would take to cook.
2 Butternut squash peeled and cut in 1" cubes
Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Allspice, Cloves..I don't know the amounts I used- depends on how much you want to bring out that flavor...(or use pumpkin spice)
butter 1/3 cup?? 1/2 cup?
Maple syrup 1/3 cup?? 1/2 cup?
1/2 can Cranberry sauce
I might have even added some peeled apples Because I remember I had brought too many on that trip and we weren't eating them.
I didn't add any liquid to the crock pot as it makes its own juice.
You can make it in 20 minutes in a pot..but I would think cooking in the crock pot made all the flavors really happy.
Sometimes at home I add the cinnamon and spices to a pot and steam the squash. Then put it in a pot and add the maple syrup, butter, cranberries sauce., apples. I just saw a recipe that called for sage...might try that next.
And by the way, if you like butternut squash...try Kabocha squash...
Well good luck!! let us know how it turned out.
You can't go wrong...
Sorry I can't be more specific...I always cook like this.. John says it tastes better if cooked in an AirStream!!!
The squash sounds good- are the cranberries in it, or on top?
Had the Globie in the driveway over night to top up the battery and attend to a short list of items, which suddenly grew by one when the water pressure regulator exploded- yes, it was so corroded it blew off the base. I ordinarily love the sound of a waterfall, it was out of place in the trailer.
MILESTONE REACHED today as our frame was hauled off to use as a pattern for the new construction. Yippee! Hopefully the new frame (with new axles attached) will be done in about three weeks, so we can actually begin CONstruction instead of DEconstruction.
