Any listed in this thread would work and be about the same carbs.

Winter Squash

Love it! A relative carb bargain for a T Day recipe! I'll be trying it!

Mmm, this sounds yum - since I can afford a few extra carbs, I'll use butternut squash instead though. May have to cut back the sweeteners a bit I'm a'thinkin'....

Kevin,
This looks delicious. Do you think the Delicata is better than the Sweet Dumpling for this kind of dish or do you use it because it's bigger and easier to work with?

I was comparing your recipe to my old one and with the sugar subs and squash, the rest of the base is exactly like my old one. Except the topping on my old one included a cup of brown sugar and marshmallows--it was like eating a dessert. How much of a brown sugar taste do you get with 2 T of brown diabetisweet? I have that (haven't used it yet) but was wondering if I'd need to use some blackstrap molasses too.

I like the sweet dumpling for things that you want to taste like a regular potato. For me the delicata are very available and inexpensive and as you say much easier to work with so I use it more. I do think it is a better fit for a sweet potato sub though.

IMO the sweetener was just right and I feel no need to try adding blackstrap to it to get a closer brown sugar taste.

With only 2 T of erythritol, do you think the rest of the family will be able to handle the sugar alcohol? I'd love to take it to our family dinner but I'd hate to hurt anyone's tummy! (I guess that would be 3 T with the topping.)

In these amounts the erythritol has no effect on me personally. I would feel safe serving this to non LC's.

Thanks Kevin. I was thinking PolyD, glad you mentioned it as well. I don't have any Not/Anything so Not/Starch is as far away as Not/Sugar!

Kind of off topic, but I tried the Sweet Dumpling Squash last night, it's delicious. I'm glad you posted about all these different squash. I probably never would have tried them otherwise!

You know any of the winter squashes that I listed in the other thread will work here. In the case of the sweet dumpling, it would be a slight bit milder than the delicata.

When I'm out of the not/Anythings I sub a mixture of xanthan and guar gums...because the not/Anythings -- ThickenThin products from ExpertFoods -- are customized mixtures of vegetable gums, including xanthan and guar.

Hope that helps some.

Seconding Tweaker Geek's question--what proportion of guar to xanthan do you use?

Not I, the things I have made with squash so far have not lasted long enough to freeze.

Re replacing ThickenThin not/Sugar or not/Starch with xanthan and guar, I mostly just eyeball it, especially in sauces and gravies.

But loosely speaking, for not/Sugar I'd do roughly 2/3 xanthan and 1/3 guar (for a total measure of about the same as the not/Sugar in whatever recipe).

For not/Starch, usually roughly equal amounts, but increase the measure in the recipe by half; e.g., to replace 1 tsp not/Starch, 3/4 tsp each of the xanthan and guar gums.

But always start on the conservative side, start small. Go ahead and replace as above if it's a tried and true (tested) recipe, but work your way up if it isn't!

I have a recycled spice shaker with a ready mixed half and half mixture, and also jars of the straight up xanthan and guar gums.

Best I can offer at this point.

This is WICKED good. I made and I'm freezing for T Day. Checked on internet. Seems okay. Made some in custard cups so I could taste!

Magnamater, I like the custard cup idea--did that change the cooking time?

Kevin,
I only have not/starch--would you sub that one for one in place of not/sugar?

This is definitely on my menu for T Day.
