My grandmother always made them because she did not like to waste anything.

They were always on our table for Thanksgiving.

If you want to try them the Old South brand is available on line and in stores.

The homemade ones are better but, it is a sticky mess to make them!

Butternuts I halve, take out the seeds then drizzle with garlic butter. Place in a roasting dish covered with foil and bake till tender. The skins soften up nicely and taste great when eaten with the squash.
Snip, I will give it a try but, I am not convinced yet!

As long as the skins are fresh they soften beatifully. Don't use a pumpkin that was picked too long ago. The skins toughen with time. My kids prefer the skins cooked with potato and onion over the actual squash!

They're not salty at all, it's a sweet preserve :) One of my favourites!
