Orange-Honey Acorn Squash
Forget about serving acorn squash with butter: This orange-honey combination perfectly complements the flavor of the acorn squash.
2 small acorn squash (1 pound each), halved and seeded
1/3 cup water
2 tablespoons orange all-fruit spread
2 tablespoons orange juice
2 tablespoons honey
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 Preheat the oven to 400°F.
2 Place the squash halves cut-sides down in baking pan. Add the water, cover with foil, and bake for 25 minutes.
3 Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the orange fruit spread, orange juice, honey, and salt.
4 Drain any liquid remaining in the baking pan and turn the squash cut-sides up. Spoon the orange-honey mixture into the squash and bake for 35 minutes, or until tender.
Makes 4 servings.
