Wow! I never thought of making preserves with butternut squash - genius and YUM! Thanks for sharing, Jay!
Sounds wonderful! Nice going, Jay!
Bet Butternut Squash would make a good spicy, hot indian-style chuntney too. Maybe I should give it a try....thanks for the inspiration.
Yvonne, what spices would you use for the chutney?
Caroline, here is a quick easy version of a mixed veg pickle by one of my favourite indian cooks, Madhur Jaffrey.
My guess is that the sames spice mix would work with the velvety texture of butternut squash, along with onions, parsnip root, rutabaga and maybe even carrot to create a lovely chutney; though I like "hot" so would maybe even add an additional sprinkle of dried red chilli flakes to get a hot, sweet pickle. The rutabaga might need a little longer to cook than the other ingredients? Def worth experimenting. I think I would even consider adding some cardamon or clove and tamarind paste as well.
Awesome! Thanks - this is a must-try. It sounds fantastic.
You're most welcome Caroline - I feel spurred to try some new things too and have printed Nigella Lawson's recipe for Chilli Jam and the BBC's Good Food recipe for Red Onion Marmalade. Thanks again to Jay for sparking the interest today : )
