I ate the last of my squashes this weekend. The little baby ones that have been so pretty as decorations. The ones that didn’t get stolen for Halloween. I was inspired to keep them whole by this recipe by Emma at The Food Gatherer. I then remembered seeing something similar in one of Diana Henry‘s books and concluded that it really is the ultimate comfort food to cosy up with. It’s a supper for a cold, autumn evening. A crisp Sunday night like tonight and needs nothing more than some crusty bread for dipping and a dry white for sipping.
This recipe is adapted from Diana Henry’s Roast Figs, Sugar Snow. I added some thyme from the garden. I was out raking leaves and I could smell it so strongly from the little corner where it lives that it made me hungry. It takes a slight edge off the creaminess and adds to the wonderful aroma that will fill your kitchen.
