I am sure, I am not the only one, who finds wonderful ways to cook squash, in particular butternut squash. Eating chunks of it plain is good, adding a little something can be better and when I say little, that is what I mean.
I took a peeled squash and separated the part with the seeds from the narrow part. I then, using my peeler, made thin strips of squash from the outside of the part with seeds (the base?). All I did, after that, was to put them in a bowl with about two tablespoons of maple syrup.
The result was pure deliciousness.
1 butternut squash half, peeled in long strips
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
Grease a small baking dish.
Mix maple syrup and squash strips.
Place in baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes, until squash is completely cooked.
