  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tsp. kosher salt, divided
  • 2 tsp. dry ginger
  • 6 lbs. (3 medium) butternut squash, fully peeled, seeded and cut into 1-inch cubes

Reduce heat to medium and maintain a low boil until the mixture has reduced and become syrupy. Coarsely chop 1/2 cup of the toasted pecans. Add them along with the remaining pecan halves to the honey mixture.
  • 4. To serve, transfer cooked squash to a large bowl and toss with the honey pecan mixture. Serve immediately.

For the cake mix, prepare as directed by placing into 3 9-inch circular pans and bake for 15 minutes. For the ready-made cake, cut into 12 slices and layer 4 slices per cake layer as outlined above.
  • **Note: 2 9-inch and 1 8-inch cake pans can also be used. Bake 8-inch layer about 5 minutes longer, if necessary.

Beef Roast with Walnut, Thyme and Sea Salt Crust

  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 1 hour, 45 minutes
  • Servings: 10 servings


  • 3/4 cup coarsely chopped Fisher® Chef's Naturals Walnut Halves and Pieces, divided
  • 1/2 stick (2 oz.) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp. coarsely ground black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. coarse sea salt
  • 6 sprigs fresh thyme, stems removed
  • 3 medium carrots, peeled and cut into 2-inch-long pieces
  • 2 medium yellow onions, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices
  • 1 5-lb. beef top round
  • 3 cups beef stock
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1 Tbsp. red wine vinegar


  • 1. Preheat the oven to 325°F.
  • 2. Combine 1/2 cup walnuts, butter, cheese, lemon juice, pepper, salt and thyme in a small bowl until well blended. Place the carrots and onions onto the bottom of a roasting pan. Arrange the beef on a fitted rack in the pan. Spread the walnut mixture all over the top of the roast beef. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until ready to cook the meat.
  • 3. Place the pan in the center of the oven and cook, for about 1 hour 45 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the meat registers between 135°F and 140°F for medium-rare. Remember that "carry over" cooking (when the roast comes out of the oven and rests) will mean the temperature will increase a few degrees after the roast is removed from the oven. The end slices will be more well-done. If the meat is undercooked, you can always cook it more, but if overcooked, there is no fixing it!
  • 4. Remove the roast beef from the pan and place it on a cutting board to rest for 20 minutes. Remove any excess grease from the roasting pan, pour in the beef stock and bring to a boil over a burner; whisk in the mustard and simmer for a few minutes to blend the flavors. Ladle 1-1/2 cups of the gravy and 1/2 of the onions and carrots into the carafe of a blender and puree until smooth. Whisk the mixture back into the gravy to thicken. Stir in the red wine vinegar and remaining 1/4 cup walnuts. Boil for 1 minute. Serve the roast whole on the platter to carve at the table, or arrange slices of beef on platter.
