"Acorn squash is flavored with a mixture of orange juice, ginger and nutmeg, and then baked until tender. An elegant dish that is almost too easy to make."

Directions

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Arrange squash halves cut side up in a shallow baking dish. Place one tablespoon of orange juice into each cavity. Sprinkle each one with ginger and nutmeg. Cover the dish with aluminum foil.
  3. Bake for 60 to 90 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the squash is tender. Baking time will depend on the size of the squash. Remove from the oven, discard aluminum foil, and let the squash rest for 5 minutes before serving to let the juices settle.

This recipe is amongst the worst I have ever tasted. I ordinarily love acorn squash, but this was the pits. Too tart and was a poor combination with the ginger and nutmeg. Try one of the many other offerings available here instead - please!

I used lime juice because I didn't have orange, it was still great....for acorn squash! :)

The spices overpowered the squash taste. Perhaps smaller quantities would give it a better taste.
