Easy Winter Squash Dessert

October 6, 2009, Posted by Carmen Lopez Marshall at 4:29 pm | No Comments



1 ½ kg squash (hubbard or other large type)
1 ¾ c sugar
2/3 c water

1 c chopped walnuts


Cut peeled, seeded squash into squares and arrange closely in a pot. Pour the sugar and water over. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer, covered, until the squash releases its water and reabsorbs it and has softened. Allow to cool, then serve garnished with walnuts. If you would like firmer pieces of squash, allow to sit overnight with the sugar. The sugar will draw the liquid out of the squash. Then bring to a boil, adding water only if necessary, and simmer till done.
