1/4 ts Ground ginger

And cubed

2 ts Light-brown sugar
=== RISOTTO ===
2 qt Double Turkey Stock; (see
2 tb Olive oil
2 oz Bacon slab; diced
1 c Minced shallots or onions
1 lb Italian Arborio rice
1 ts Chopped sage
1/4 ts Thyme leaves
1/2 c Dry white wine
2 tb Chopped flat-leaf parsley
Coarse salt
Freshly-ground white pepper

TO MAKE THE SPICED BUTTER: Combine all ingredients in a small bowl. Cover,
and set aside at room temperature until ready to use. (You can prepare the
butter up to 8 hours in advance, and store, refrigerated, in an airtight

TO MAKE THE CARAMELIZED SQUASH: In a large saute pan, melt the butter over
medium heat. Place the squash in a bowl, and season with salt and pepper.
Add squash to pan; cook, stirring occasionally, until browned, about 6
minutes. Cover; cook until tender, about 5 minutes more. Add the brown
sugar; cook until squash has caramelized but still holds its shape, about 2
minutes. Set aside. (You may prepare the squash up to 1 hour in advance,
and store, covered, at room temperature.)

In a large saucepan, bring the Double Turkey Stock to a boil over high
heat. Reduce the heat to a very low simmer. In a large heavy-bottomed
saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat. Add bacon, and cook until lightly
browned, about 5 minutes. Add shallots, and cook, stirring often, until
softened, about 3 minutes more. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Stir in the
rice, sage, and thyme. Cook, stirring with a wooden spoon, until the rice
is coated, has released its starch, turns a milky opaque white, and begins
to stick to the bottom of the pan, 7 to 10 minutes. Add the wine, and boil
until completely reduced, 2 to 3 minutes.

Ladle about 1 cup of the simmering stock into the rice. Cook, stirring
often, until the stock has almost been completely absorbed by the rice.
Continue cooking and stirring, adding another 1 cup stock only when the
previous addition has been absorbed. After 15 minutes, begin tasting the
rice. At this point, add the remaining stock, a little at a time, stirring
between additions, until the rice is firm yet cooked through, 18 to 20

Stir in the reserved spiced butter and the parsley, and season with salt
and pepper. Gently fold in the reserved caramelized squash, keeping the
individual pieces as intact as possible. Divide the risotto among warm
bowls, and serve immediately.

Serves 6 as an appetizer, or 4 as an entree.
