Roasted Acorn Squash


It’s that time again.  The collection of spices in this recipe takes the squash to a completely different place.  When you bake the squash, open the kitchen windows and expect your neighbors to stop in. What a great idea!

  • 2 Acorn Squash
  • 3-4 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons butter, diced
  • olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon ground Cardamom
  • ¼ teaspoon Cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon All Spice
  •  ¼ teaspoon Cayenne
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Cut the squash in half, remove the seeds. Cut the two squash halves into several sections following the ribs and place into a large bowl. Toss with the brown sugar, butter, olive oil and spices and salt.

Bake 450 degrees for 15-20 minutes—or… 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

      Hey Vicki! You will love this! Those are amazing flavors! The hard part is peeling the cardamom unless you buy it already ground up. Sort of expensive. But hey, what the heck. Have fun in the kitchen! Wish we were there! pg
