Acorn squash takes very well to spicey flavors and is so good with pork and poultry dishes.  I Like this subtly spiced version with chipotle and honey, which adds a bit of smoky excitement. 

Yield:  4 servings 

2 acorn squash, halved and deseeded

2 Tablespoons softened butter

2 Tablespoons raw honey

½ teaspoon chipotle powder

½ teaspoon Saigon, freshly ground cinnamon

Several grates nutmeg 

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F. when you are about 30 minutes from wanting to serve these. Then place the squash halves on a foil lined cookie sheet.  Mix all of the baste ingredients together, then carefully divide the mixture into 4 parts, placing ¼ of the mixture in each, spooning it all around the cavity and the cut edges.  Bake until fork tender, about 20 minutes.  Serve hot.
