There are a few weeks of winter left (or so we hope), but luckily grocery stores tend to carry butternut squash for most of the year. Maple-glazed squash is a great comfort food to take you through the winter; its sweet and spicy notes also make it a cross-seasonal dish that can be whipped up in the spring and fall.
