Ingredient Info
Butternut squash has a smooth, creamy-tan peel and a large peanut shape. Its bright, yellow-orange flesh is moist and sweet.
Ingredient Substitution
In place of butternut squash, use your favorite sweet winter squash; try acorn, buttercup or delicata. Sweet potatoes work well, too. Cut the squash or sweet potatoes into 1-inch pieces and measure 3 cups.
Serving Suggestion
Applesauce is always nice with pork; or try sliced apples sautéed in a bit of butter until tender. Serve crusty rolls as a bread accompaniment.
