Ingredients
  • 8 cups cubed butternut squash (the red kuri squash would work as well)
  • 2 tbsp Driftless Sunflower Oil (or olive oil)
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 2 pinches cayenne

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Line 2 baking sheets with foil (optional– protects baking sheet when the sugars caramelize so it won’t be sticky/hard to clean).
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine all of the ingredients and toss a few times to evenly coat the squash.
  4. Spread out on your baking sheet.
  5. Place in the oven for 10-15 minutes.
  6. Check and stir everything around and put back in the oven for another 10-15 minutes.
  7. When the squash is soft, place under broiler for 1-2 minutes (be careful not to burn!) or until sugars have carmelized.
