Farm Fresh Recipes — Winter baskets
This is one of my families favourite meals! It is also one of those take-the-afternoon to languish in my kitchen and prepare an extra special meal recipes. Simply because the chopping of all our favourite ingredients takes time :) But boy, is it worth it!
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.😋
