Food Storage Recipe Monday

Posted by imawheatwatcher on November 22, 2010

I thought that it would be a great use of this blog to post food storage friendly recipes every Monday. I have gotten several comments that people would LOVE more recipes. If you have a recipe that you love and would like to share, please email it to me!

This recipe is for those that still have some acorn or butternut squash they aren’t quite sure what to do with.

Squash Pie

*This is a sweet pie. Almost like pumpkin just a different veg.

1 pint (2 c) squash- cooked*, sieved or blended (I put my in a food processor)
1 pint milk (2 c)
4 eggs
4 TBS flour
butter- size of egg (approx. 6 TBS)
1 1/2 c sugar
2 TBS ground cinnamon
1/2 TBS ground ginger
1/2 TBS ground nutmeg**
1/2 TBS salt

Mix squash, milk, and eggs, beat together with wire whisk. Mix dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Add to squash mixture. Cook in double boiler, keep the water boiling without it all boiling away-probably on medium-low. Add butter, cook until a dab put on a plate sets, approx. 1 1/2 hr. Pour into cooked pastry shell. Makes 2 pies.

*To cook the squash: Slice it in half, take out the seeds and then wrap the halves in foil. Bake it at 350 degrees until soft, about 45-60 min.
**You can substitute nutmeg with allspice.

This recipe comes from a long line of women on my husband’s side. John asks for this EVERY Thanksgiving!
