Peanutbutter Butternut from the Bush

23 09 2010

Hello Lovelies!
Shan’t bang on any more about recent trip to the Kenyan bush, I think I have done quite enough of that for the time being. (I hear your collective sigh of relief). I shall however share with you our latest BBQ bonanza in the form of fire-roasted butternut smothered in peanut butter. Sounds random I know, but it’s honest-to-goodnessly delicious – even back home in your yuppie kitchen sans campfire, stars and bush.
PS. It must be fate that this has arrived the day before National Braai Day here in South Africa. Lekker boet.
PPS. You’re welcome.

Serves 4 | Preparation time 2 mins | Cooking time 45 mins


1 large butternut, halved and de-seeded
3 Tbsp peanut butter
Enough tinfoil to fully wrap the butternut

1. Prepare some good camping fire coals/Oven at 180C
2. Make a few criss-crosses with a knife over the surface of the butternut (we forgot) and spread liberally with peanut butter
3. Wrap the butternut halves each in their own tinfoil (shiny side facing inwards)
4. Place gently on the coals/in the oven and leave for 45 mins
5. You will know when it’s done if you can easily insert a knife into the butternut
6. Unwrap and serve

Looks simple enough – and the combo sounds great. I love peanut butter but no-one else in the family does, but maybe try it with them without telling them what’s in it – hide it in the parcel – haha – and see what the reaction is! Enjoy your Braai Day in SA (only in SA would there be a Braai Day – haha).
