Winter squash is delicious, and it is a staple of winter cuisine due to store-ability and hardiness. I often find myself with a buildup of squash in my winter CSA, and I seek new ways to prepare it. Baking a squash enables me to use it in a recipe, and store the mashed up squash for another day. Butternut squash is a winter meal staple, but it can be so much more! It is mildly sweet, moist, and versatile--good for soups, roasting, mashes, pies, etc. This recipe and preparation is a way to enjoy butternut any time of the year.
