If you’re up for an unusual, but delicious and unprocessed Fall dessert, give this Maple Butternut Pudding a try.
* To roast a butternut squash: Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. With a big sharp knife, cut squash in half lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds and place squash halves, cut side up, in a baking dish. Cover with foil and roast for 40-50 minutes in a 400 degree oven until the squash is very tender (can be pierced easily with a fork). When squash is cool enough to handle, scoop flesh from skin. Mash it lightly and place in a strainer for a minute to let any excess liquid drain off. Measure out 1 cup of squash for pudding recipe and reserve the rest for another use.
