Farm Fresh Recipes — butternut squash
I don't know about you, but butternut squash isn't the first ingredient that pops into my head when I think about chocolate cake. It's a good thing that there are some incredibly creative people out there though, oherwise we would never have been introduced to the delights of chocolate butternut squash molten lava cake!
First off butternut squash is a winter squash with a sweet, nutty taste similar to that of a pumpkin, only creamier. The butternut squash was coveted by aboriginal people and early settlers because it has an extra long shelf life! It is delicious cooked in a variety of ways– baked or roasted, in a puree, in soups or stews, and as a sweet addition to other hearty winter dishes.😋
