Acorn Squash Puree
- Basic Acorn Squash
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 teaspoon coarse salt
- Ground nutmeg
Prepare Basic Acorn Squash. When cool enough to handle, halve each squash lengthwise. Scoop out and discard seeds; scrape out flesh from squash halves, and transfer to a food processor (discard skin). Process until smooth. You can also season it and serve it as a side dish.
In a medium saucepan, combine squash purÃ©e with 2 tablespoons butter and 1 teaspoon coarse salt. Cook over medium heat until hot, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a serving dish, and sprinkle lightly with ground nutmeg.
