NOT your Granny's Butter!

Move over apples and pumpkins...there's a better butter in town! This one squashes the competition. You can butter granny up with a sample. Slather your maple squash butter on baked goods, hot cereals and top sundaes. Eat it straight out of the jar from a spoon with the fridge door hanging open...go ahead....mum's the word ;)

          Hi Hannah! You can use any sweetener you like. I used to use Truvia and have since switched to Stevia which comes from the leaf of the Stevia plant. You may need to use a little more sugar as Truvia is a little sweeter than sugar.

          This sounds lovely, I am really looking forward to trying. Do you know if you can swap the Truvia for sugar and if it would make much difference?
