“This is made just like apple butter, but with acorn squash. My family says it tastes just like pumpkin pie filling. It lasts about 2 months in the refrigerator or 6 months in the freezer.”

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Fill two 9x13-inch baking dishes with 1-inch of water each. Place three acorn squash halves cut-side-down into each baking dish. Bake in the preheated oven until the squash is very tender and the skin begins to separate from the meat, about 1 hour. Remove, discard the water, and set aside until cool enough to handle.
  3. Scoop the acorn squash flesh from the skins and into a blender. Add the cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves. Puree until thick and smooth. Scrape the squash into a heavy-bottom pot, and stir in the brown sugar and apple juice concentrate. Cook and stir over medium-low heat until thickened, 40 to 45 minutes. Cool completely before packing into freezer-safe containers. Store in the freezer up to 6 months.

We made this today and it is really good tasting. It blends together really smooth in our blender and reminds me of pepperkakor cookies we like, without as much sugar. We ate it on cornbread and look forward to eating on it for a while, if it lasts. Followed the recipe just as written, well pleased with the results. An excellent use for lots of acorn squash from the food co-op!

Tastes very similar to apple butter. I broke my blender in the middle of the process so mine came out a little chunkier than intended I think but it was really good.
