There are many delicious garden vegetables I enjoy in the fall but one of my favorites is the butternut squash.  The butternut squash is a winter squash whose taste slightly resembles pumpkin.  The butternut squash is a little bit less sweet than a pumpkin but just as delicious.  The butternut squash also stores wonderfully in a root cellar or a colder area of your home.  Historically, winter squashes provided valuable nutrition throughout the colder months after the garden had stopped producing.

Butternut squash and pear is a wonderful combination of flavors.  We have a pear tree in our yard and although the pears are much smaller than the ones you find in the grocery store (and not as pretty), they are still just as delicious.
