Recipe for October 14, 2007This comes, not from a cookbook, but from a stack of faded papers found in a pile of clipped and saved recipes. One would suspect that a recipe this old didn’t require specifics, only judgment. Below, is the recipe, as written:
Slice butternut squash and put in a layer in a casserole. Sprinkle over top – of each – scant teaspoon brown sugar, dot of butter and spoon over cream. Bake in 350 degree oven 1 hour. (I cover this until about the last 10 min.)
For those needing more direction:
Peel the squash using a vegetable peeler . Scoop out the seeds and slice. Arrange slices in a shallow casserole as if you were shingling a roof. Sprinkle brown sugar and salt over the slices, dot with butter and drizzle the cream over the top. Cover with foil and place in a 350° oven for 1 hour. Uncover the last 10 minutes.
