Butternut squash and oranges breathe new life into a classic holiday pie. The natural sweetness of fresh orange juice replaces up to one-third of the added sugar found in traditional pie recipes. The orange’s flavor and acidity also allow for a 50 percent reduction in added salt. While regular navel oranges are a fine and dandy choice for this recipe, there are other options to consider, like extra-sweet Cara Caras and dark red-pigmented Moro oranges (aka blood oranges), which offer a change of pace in flavor and hue. Whichever you choose, read the product sticker. For optimal flavor and freshness, select oranges from within the United States.
