    • oil or fat, for greasing the squash
    • 1 medium butternut squash
    • 2 tablespoons butter or clarified butter from grass-fed cows (see sources)
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

4. Remove the squash from the oven and allow it to cool until you can easily handle the squash without gloves.
5. Spoon out the squash’s bright orange flesh and place it in a food processor or stand mixer along with two tablespoons butter, one teaspoon ground cinnamon and a dash unrefined sea salt.
6. Process until well-blended and quite smooth.
