About this recipe: A lightly sweetened and spiced squash recipe. Acorn squash is peeled, then microwaved with apples, butter, brown sugar, walnuts, salt and cinnamon. Serve as a side dish.
You could use butternut squash for variety. Pecans work well in this recipe instead of walnuts. Honey or maple syrup can used with or instead of the dark brown soft sugar.
Very good! I followed the recipe for the ingredients but just filled halved acorn squash with the ingredients and roasted in the oven at 375 (covered for half of the time) until the squash was tender. Yum! - 13 Oct 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I have used a similar recipe for a long time that uses more butter. I put a little nutmeg and cardamon in mine as well. I am giving this 5 stars because it is a delicious way to make squash, and also for the tip on how to peel those buggers-they're not easy!! Thanks for the tip!!! - 16 Sep 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is a fabulous recipe. I find myself making it weekly. Thank you so much for posting it. I omit the walnuts and add 2/3 cup of dried cranberries and 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce. - 19 Feb 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
