Acorn / Buttercup Squash Cubed – Maple
by James Belardo

The fall harvest begins and the weather becomes a bit chilly, the squash comes out to play.

1 Buttercup squash, skinned and cut up in 1-inch squares
1/2 cup maple syrup
2 tbsp unsalted butter (melted)
1 cup Chicken stock (try our homemade version)

Salt  and black pepper – to taste


1. Preheat oven to 350F

2. Wash and cut the squash in half lengthwise from stem to tip. Scoop out the seeds and the stringy membrane. Use a peeler and remove outer skin and then cut into 1-inch chunks.

3. Mix warmed maple syrup, melted unsalted butter, chicken stock, salt and black pepper.

6. Mix the squash cubes and maple syrup mixture together, making sure all cubes are coated

7. Place in baking pan and cover with maple and bake for about an 1 hour or until flesh is is soft and the edges show signs of browning. The squash will get nice and soft.
