Fall is my favorite time of year. I adore not only every single color of Fall, but also the smell of the crisp air, crunchy leaves, and mostly sitting down to the special foods we only get during this season. This dish, for me is on the top of the list.
Not everyone likes butternut squash, but then not everyone has tried it butter-roasted with a light glaze of pepper jelly and a little sage. Trust me, if you make it for a family gathering, you will have converts from previous squash-haters. You can use any of the pepper jellies, but I like the Mango Ginger Habanero best (I think because of the ginger combining in a beautiful Fall'ish way with the squash). Oh, so delicious!
Try it, and then let me know if you were "converted."
- 1 butternut squash, peeled, seeded and cubed

- 1-2 cloves garlic, minced
