Butternut SquashSteamed butternut squash is one of our favorite vegetables. It’s simple and quick to prepare. Peel, seed, and cube a butternut squash. The cubes should be fairly small, no larger than 1/2-inch, so that the squash will steam easily.

Steam the squash in salted water as you would other garden vegetables. The squash will not take long to cook and you want the squash tender but not soft. Once cooked, drain any excess water. Put a pat of butter and a couple tablespoons of honey or brown sugar on the vegetables until the butter is melted and the cubes are coated. Serve immediately.

(Personally, I prefer the squash without the honey or brown sugar but the kids prefer it with a touch of sweetener.)
