Candied Butternut Squash and Cranberries

Saturday, November 1, 2008

I threw this recipe together with turkey breast and my mom's Bran Refrigerator Rolls last night, and happened to taste it before we sat down to dinner. It was so good, I actually remembered to photograph it for a post before it all disappeared! The long bake time on this caramelized the squash (it had sweet, crispy edges) and the cranberries added a lovely pop.

One butternut squash, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup cranberries
1/3 cup maple syrup
3 tbs. coconut oil or butter
1/2 tsp. salt
Dash of cloves

Place squash and cranberries in 13"x9"x2" pan. Drizzle maple syrup over squash and cranberries. Distribute coconut oil or butter evenly around pan. Sprinkle salt and cloves evenly.

Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
