roasted 3 good sized butternut squash in the solar oven, removed the guts, mashed, and spread out on sheets to dry. They came out a little dryer than a fruit leather, but not so dry that they could be crumbled. Had seasoned them with salt and pepper and a touch of garlic. Unfortunately, I didn’t weigh before and after to calculate how much water was needed to reconstitute.
butternut squash is easily available and not that expensive, but this is an experiment in using the solar oven, drying the squash, buying organic in season at the farmer’s market while its super fresh and the price is right. PLUS quicker cooking on a busy day.
