Tried a different acorn squash recipe last night

I was given two acorn squash yesterday. I don't really know how to cook them- my mother used to slice, bread and fry them, which was very good, but I don't fry at all.

So I googled and found an easy way to cook them, and I'd do it again:

cut them in half through the stem end

with a spoon scrape out seeds and stringy stuff

place in cooking dish, cup side up

drop in a bit of butter,  a little brown sugar, and about a half tsp of maple syrup

add about a half inch of water to the bottom of the dish

Bake at 400 for an hour or so, until tender, basting after the butter melts to coat the inside of the squash.

I served them right in the shell.  Clean up was simple, too.

It was. Even my husband commented.  We just ate it out of the shell- very easy to cook and serve.

:)  I still like my mom's fried acorn squash, but this is a good alternative.

Sounds great but I can't get my family (especially dd, age 11) to eat sweet vegetables. I've been serving glazed carrots for a while but she just pushes them away. I'd eat it though!
