Aldine's #UrbanFarmReport, featuring Montana organic farmer Bob Quinn, author of Grain by Grain: A Quest to Revive Ancient Wheat, Rural Jobs, and Healthy Food, Bob Quinn and Liz Carlisle (Island Press 2019).

Cook 2 medium squash. Carnival is my favorite squash as it tastes the most like a sweet potato. Cut in half and remove seeds (seeds can be dried and roasted later for additional treats.) Before baking, I rub on a little organic safflower oil and lightly season with salt and pepper.

Put in a covered dish (skin side down) for 1 hour @ 350 degrees or until fully cooked. Makes a little over 5 cups.

Once cool enough to handle, remove the skin, mash and then blend in the following and put in a covered casserole dish (I use organic ingredients as much as possible):

  • ½ to ¾ cup brown sugar (depending on sweetness of squash)
  • 4  tablespoons butter
  • 1½  teaspoons vanilla
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½  cup milk
  • 2 eggs

For streusel topping, combine and mix the following and spread on top of above mixture already in the dish:

  • ¾  cup brown sugar
  • ½  cup flour
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 4 tablespoons butter

Cook casserole at 350 for 30 minutes until topping has browned.
