Notes about this recipe

    Cooked to use with the risotto recipe from the same book. Had to use 2 smaller squash to get the quantity. Took nearer 55 minutes to cook, but I think that was because I'd had enough trying to slice the squash. As per other notes, think you can change the spices as you wish. I will go easier on the fennel next time, but that was because I chucked in 1teaspoon instead of half and I'm also rubbish with the mortar and pestle.

    I've been making this for years, changing the spices, and usually using the small butternut squash that I grow in the garden. I leave the skin on and increase the oil a bit. Also toast the seeds at the same time with the same spice mixture.

    Lazily, I used precut butternut. I am sure this is nicer if you include the skins. Not totally convinced by the fennel seeds, but then I am not a big fan of aniseed.

    Mfto- I heard a tip for safely cutting butternut squash. Prick it with a fork and microwave it for @2 minutes then let cool. This will loosen the skin making it easier to peel. Once it is peeled it is easier to cut. I have done it this way for years. Otherwise my husband insists on cutting it so we don't have to make a trip to the Emergency Room.

    p 148 This is so easy and so delicious. Use a 2 to 3 lb butternut squash. Cutting the squash is the dangerous part for me. I followed Jamie's cutting instructions but as he says you can hack any way you please. Unfortunately my squash was too young and wasn't sweet but the flavoring was great. He says you can also use acorn squash. I have made this twice now and am thinking of trying the spices on sweet potato. My husband really like this and he is not an easy sell.

    If you've never roasted squash, this is a very good recipe to start with. It's simple and it's very tasty.
