Total time: 20 min Serves: about 5 slices of toast Suitable for: an exciting study snack
1 cup butternut squash, peeled and cubed
1/2 cup honey
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp nutmeg
Steam the butternut squash until tender, takes only about 15 minutes. No steamer? Not to worry. I learned this from Nigel Slater. Simply fill a deep pot with a bit of water, put a large colander on it, make sure it's not touching the water, so not much water in the pot at all. Put your squash in there and cover with a lid. Genius, no? <3 Nigel.
Wait for it to cool, and mash with a fork. Add all the other ingredients and mix until well combined.
