Another Great New Product

Just back from the Berkshire Farmers' Market where I found a new (to me, anyway) product:

Carr's Ciderhouse Apple Cider Syrup.  Couldn't wait to try it, so I roasted the butternut squash I'd also bought at the market, and then mashed it with some salt, butter and generous lashings of the syrup. It's going to be great with the ham we're having for dinner.

Roasted Butternut Squash with Apple Cider Syrup

Cut the squsah in half, which is the hardest part of this entire recipe. Remove the seeds, put it in a roasting pan, cut side down, with a little bit of water and roast at 400 degrees for about 45 minutes. Let it cool, then squish it out of the skin and mash.  

Add 2 or 3 tablespoons of butter, salt and pepper to taste and allow the butter to melt.  Splash in some of the syrup; I used a couple of tablespoons, but you might want to use more.

At the very end, I stirred in some pomegranate seeds. Great for color and crunch.


Serves 4-6.

    Ruth, I didn’t know how else to do this but I’m writing a bit about Naomi Berry as I was shocked to find she has disappeared from search engine sight with so little out there about her. Seems 50 years of writing should leave more of a footprint. Do you have any words about her (other than the great ones you wrote in Remembrance of Things Paris)? Sorry to have to do it this way — message on Facebook?
    Love your words. Apple syrup is divine.
