Use this recipe to make our Indian Pudding, Buttercup Squash Tea Bread, and Butternut Squash Ravioli with Fried Sage Leaves recipes.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place squash halves, skin side up, on an oiled rimmed baking sheet. Bake until fork-tender, about 1 1/4 hours. Remove from oven. Turn over; let stand until cool enough to handle.
Scoop the flesh into a food processor, and discard skin. Puree until smooth. Refrigerate squash puree in an airtight container up to 4 days or store in the freezer up to 1 month.
