ACORN SQUASH ROASTED with CHIPOTLE HONEY
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
- 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.
