I subscribe to a CSA and I am head over heels in love with it... except for one little thing. The butternut squash. I've really tried to like it, and it's okay baked into muffins, but for the most part I just can not stand butternut. It must be a bumper year for butternuts because I have a stock pile of them collecting in my kitchen. It was completely out of hand, so on a quest to use the squash, I came across a fantastic food blog - Not Eating Out In New York. If you like food blogs, I highly recommend you check this one out. I am smitten. I love the recipes, the DIY attitude and the farm postings. Her ice cream recipes in particular look amazing. I can't wait to try the chai tea ice cream.

So, armed with my ice cream maker and butternut puree from my freezer, I set about to make this recipe for Rum Butternut Ice Cream, minus the rum. (We were out and I didn't feel like making a trip to the store for a single teaspoon of rum.) Other than omitting the rum, I only changed a couple things from the original recipe. I strained the custard mixture to remove any lumps and chilled it in the fridge over night before putting it into the ice cream maker. It came out amazingly well. It tasted just like smooth, frosty pumpkin pie topped with lots of whipped cream. The only thing I will do differently next time is to cut down on the amount of white sugar. The butternut has a lot of natural sugars already and I prefer ice cream that isn't super sweet. But over all, it really is excellent ice cream and I'm thrilled that I've added a winter squash recipe to my arsenal.

*ps. I copied this from my new blog, so it's a little wordy. Sorry! Let me know if you have any questions and I'd be happy to answer them. Smiley

dropoffradar, CSAs are a lot of fun! They really do challenge you to be more creative in the kitchen. One of my favorite things is how the produce changes as the seasons change. I get so excited when the first cherries or asparagus or melons arrive!

Bellazeus, your ice cream flavors sound delicious! What do you put in grape hubba bubba?
