- 5 pounds mixed winter squash
- 1 piece (2 inches) ginger , peeled
- 1/4 cup honey
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter , melted
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
Thinly slice ginger and then slice again into thin matchsticks and set aside. In a small saucepan, stir together honey, butter, ginger and 1/4 cup water. Cook over medium heat until mixture comes to a simmer. Brush over squash and drizzle any remaining mixture on top. Sprinkle salt over squash.
Bake 45 minutes to 1 hour, turning and basting squash every 10 to 15 minutes until golden brown and fork-tender. (Add a few tablespoons of water to pan as squash roasts if it seems to be burning.)
Place squash on a serving dish and drizzle evenly with pan juices.
