Bashful Butternut Squash meets Bourbon!User Submitted Recipe
Brown Sugared & Bourbonized!
What you need….
1/2 (of whole) fresh butternut squash (I buy already peeled and packaged)—cut into pieces
4 tbl butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 blood orange squeezed juice & pulp
2 tbl lemon juice
1tbl lemon zest
1/2 cup bourbon
1/3 cup Fromage Blanc
1 1/2 cups large seedless black (sweet!) grapes cut lengthwise in halves
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1. Melt butter in medium skillet over medium heat, add butternut squash pieces and sauté, stirring occasionally, turn heat to med low and cook until tender (about 20 minutes depending upon the size and thickness of the chunks you have cut). You will know it’s ready when the butternut squash begins to kind of ‘mush’ and break apart.
2. Add brown sugar, orange and lemon juice and zest. Blend. Turn up heat to medium to med high and bring the mixture to a sizzle then add the bourbon. Allow bourbon and butternut squash to sizzle and cook about 3-4 minutes stirring and blending a few times.
3. Add in the Fromage Blanc, halved large sweet black grapes and walnut pieces. Blend everything together. Cover with a lid. Turn off heat and just allow the mixture to sit and rest for about 10 minutes.
