You’re going to love this roasted buttercup squash with brown sugar and honey. It goes well with just about any meat dish – pork, chicken, or beef. It’s quick and easy, too, so be sure to pick up some squash on your next visit to the grocery store!
I’ve been a squash fanatic for years, even though I had only tried three varieties: summer, butternut, and spaghetti. I just don’t see other types in my grocery stores very often. That’s probably because I live an hour and a half from the nearest interstate or major highway. Yep, you read that right. Hard to believe, but true. Folks around here raise a lot of gardens, but squash varieties just haven’t been included for some reason.
Whenever we make a trip to the “big city,” I try to stop by a grocery store to pick up a few things that I just can’t find locally. On my last trip, they had a beautiful selection of squash varieties, so of course I picked up one or two of each! One good thing about squash is that they tend to keep well – much longer than many other vegetables. You can read more about winter squash at 8 Great Winter Squash to Try Now.

Another thing I love is honey….not just any honey – local honey. It’s so good for you, and is supposed to even help with allergies. I found a recipe on Pinterest that called for maple syrup, but I made an adjustment to include honey. I hope you and your family enjoy!
