Delicious Baked Acorn Squash
Pure Maple Syrup
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Half each squash, then scrape out the seeds and stringy membranes.
Sprinkle each half with salt.
Add a generous tablespoon of butter to the center of each squash.
Add 2 to 3 heaping tablespoons brown sugar.
Drizzle squash with maple syrup.
Pour 2 cups water in the bottom of the baking pan.
Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake an additional 30-45 minutes, or until squash is golden brown. In the last 5 minutes of baking, turn on the broiler and allow tops to get a little more brown and the butter/sugar mixture to bubble.
Serve on a platter and share with Aunt Winifred.
