We are spending our #seasonalsaturday warming up with some delicious AND local winter squashes. Squash is so versatile – you can steam it, use it for soup, or roast it up plain. Our recipe calls for just 3 ingredients – easy peasy!

For our recipe, we used butterkin & buttercup squashes. Butterkin squash is a new variety of butternut squash that blends butternut and pumpkin squash together. It has a sweet, smooth texture. Buttercup squash has a similar texture to Kabocha squash but with a sweeter taste. Add to that a little maple syrup, and you will feel cozy and ready to welcome in the holidays.


2 Winter Squash of your choice

2 tbsp. maple syrup

Olive Oil for drizzling



  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. 
  2. For this recipe, we sliced one of our squashes in half and scooped out the seeds. The other we cut into slices.
  3. Drizzle with olive oil and cook for approximately 20 minutes. 
  4. Pull out of the oven and drizzle maple syrup on the squash. Cook for an additional 15 – 20 minutes, until fork tender.
  5. Let cool and DIG IN!
