Maple Acorn Squash Recipe
Cindy's Table

Once when I was shopping, I spotted acorn squash and already had a pint of pure maple syrup in my cart. I was immediately inspired. This is the perfect side dish for roast turkey at Thanksgiving, or even a simple roast chicken on a weeknight.

Ingredients

  • 2 medium acorn squash, about 1 1/2 pounds each
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 Cups pure maple syrup
  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted organic butter, melted

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Cut the squash in half lengthwise and remove and discard the seeds and membrane. Cut each half widthwise into ½-inch slices and discared the ends. Place the squash slices in a large baking dish in a single layer. Season with season. Combine the maple syrup and butter and drizzle over the squash. Roast in the oven until cooked through and slightly golden brown around the edges, about 15 minutes. 

Maple Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Maple Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
