Source: Everyday Food, October 2004


  • 1 medium (unpeeled) butternut squash
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
  • coarse salt and ground pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Halve butternut squash lengthwise; scoop out seeds. Place cut sides up in a roasting pan (to help it sit level, slice a thin strip from skin sides). Fill each cavity with butter and pure maple syrup; season with coarse salt and ground pepper. Roast until fork-tender, 45 minutes to 1 hour.

  2. Halve squash again lengthwise; spoon butter mixture from pan over tops (skins are edible).
