butternut-squash-with-balsamic-orange-marmalade-glazeWell this is my latest creation… caused by accident.  I just came back from Florida and brought with me bunches of fresh oranges, my thoughts were to make marmalade.  Having received the beautiful bottle of Orange Balsamic Vinegar for Christmas last year, I thought I might add a bit to my marmalade.  Well, not thinking of the color change… I now have brown marmalade. Best laid plans… I must use up this mistake, therefore here is my creation. Turned out pretty amazing,

Large butternut squash, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes

1⁄4 cup extra virgin olive oil

1⁄4 cup honey

1 teaspoon candied ginger, diced

4 ozs balsamic orange marmalade

salt and black pepper


Heat oven to 375

Lay the sweet potatoes out in a single layer on a roasting tray. Drizzle the oil, salt and pepper over the potatoes. Roast for 25 to 30 minutes in oven or until tender.

In a saucepan add honey, balsamic marmalade and ginger. Stir to combine.

When potatoes are roasted, remove and toss to coat with marmalade mixture.


Post script… this marmalade will be available at the market if you want to try some for yourself.  Going to try it on a pork roast next!
