By October 16, 2023Newsletter, Uncategorized

Maple Glazed Acorn Squash


2 acorn squash cut in half (about 1 ½ lbs)

¾ cup water (for baking pan)

1 red onion finely chopped (about 3oz)

3 tablespoons unsalted butter 

½ cup maple syrup


Preheat oven to 350 degrees


Cut acorn squash in half and pierce the skins with a fork or something sharp.

Put the water in the baking pan and place the squash face down in the pan.

Bake for 45 minutes or until semi-soft.


Meanwhile, saute the onion in the butter until golden brown. When the squash is semi-soft, scoop out the flesh, leaving enough so that the shell does not collapse. Add the squash flesh to the onion mixture and saute for 5 minutes. 

Add maple syrup and saute for 5 more minutes. Spoon the mixture into the squash shell and bake for 15 minutes. Serve hot.
