Roasting brings out squash's natural sugars. Blending with maple syrup, butter and nutmeg makes it utterly addictive. Bonus: This dish reheats beautifully.
The puree can be kept warm in a heavy covered saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally, or covered and refrigerated for up to one day and reheated over medium-low heat in a covered heavy saucepan. Stir occasionally.
