Acorn Squash Puree is a wonderful side dish or sweet edible garnish for your Thanksgiving Dinner. Sprinkle on some crunchy pecans for added texture.
At the Thanksgiving table I serve this as a side dish. Some people use this in place of cranberry sauce. Acorn Squash Puree is sweet and tastes fantastic with turkey. I dip my turkey in my acorn squash puree. If you have a baby at the table they love this too! Just make sure to remove any pecans pieces.
The acorn squash is surprisingly sweet on its own but with we added some maple syrup for extra sweetness and for an extra touch of Fall flavor. The creamy salted butter blended in gives it another flavor that is just Thanksgiving harmony!
Those winter squashes go on sale pretty check in the Fall so be sure to stock up. I also have a recipe for Baked Acorn Squash that is filled with pecans, butter and brown sugar.
