Baked Acorn Squash

Baked Acorn Squash

Cut your organic acorn squash in half and remove the seeds.
Bake your squash , flesh side down, in the oven (350 degrees) in a 1/4 cup of water until fully cooked; soft throughout.
Warm a mixture of 1 cup of dried fruit cut into bite sized pieces in  1/2 a cup of brandy or wine.
Spoon this mixture into each half of the squash.
(try apricots, cranberries, raisins, goji berries, prunes … you’ve got al kinds of options!)
Serve warm.
Alternatively – bake your squash flesh side up with grass fed butter and organic & fair trade brown sugar / maple syrup in the middle.  Baked until soft and the syrup glazes.
 
Great side dish!
