Butternut Squash

My parents, being elderly, they must have butternut squash at least once a week. I peal the skin off the squash. Cut in into large cubes then boil it until tender. You could steam them or roast them. I use a potato masher, it works fine as long as you have cooked it long enough. What you add is really up to your taste. They prefer sweet so I add brown sugar, salt, fresh ground pepper and butter. For Bob I use extra virgin olive oil. I have used a real maple syrup, salt, cinnamon and I enjoy a lot of fresh ground pepper with it. I need the pepper to off set the sweet. I am just not a lover of sweet food. I have seen recipes with crushed cloves, yet have never tried it.
