The easiest way to peel butternut squash is with a vegetable peeler; the harp-shaped variety works particularly well.

Please add the sodium content to the recipes. It is the only thing that matters for me as far as nutritional content and very few sites offer this information. Thanks!

Martha, I love all your recipes but could you please supply the carb amount. We have diabetes in our family and need to know the carb numbers. Many thanks....

My aunt has been making this for years. She adds sauteed mushrooms. I think it is lovely.

Martha, I sure wish you could do the caloric amount to help some of us who need to know what we can eat. I'm a weight Watcher for life and I am always concerned about what I'm eating. Thanks, Boni

This was a delicious recipe. The squash turns out soft yet browned on the edges and nicely carmelized at the end. I took kvicaire's advice and added extra brown sugar (2 tbs extra) and it was good with the extra sweetness. The salt gives a tasty combination of salt and sweet. Definitely one to try with all the wonderful fall squash!
