Pueblo Butternut Squash Piñon Nut Sweetbread Recipe
Pueblo Butternut Squash Piñon Nut Sweetbread is traditionally served to parties of Rio Grande Pueblo nut pickers in September when piñon nuts were being picked from the mountain slope trees. Families would (and some still do) camp for many weeks in traditional areas reserved to clans. In the recipe, you can use either cooking-type pumpkin (these have necks and thick, meaty bodies, not like jack o’ lantern pumpkins) or a sweet bright orange squash, like butternut.
