Making 100% MAPLE SYRUP Baked Squash .....The Sap is Running....Time to Cook With this Liquid Gold
This evening for supper I wanted to make a treat that many Canadians enjoy. Squash baked with Maple Syrup. I recently sent @daddykirbs a small bottle of Maple Syrup and told him about using it with squash and he asked for a demonstration so here it is.
First you Need your Typical Acorn Squash. I like to wash mine fist before cooking.
Then you cut it as you would in preparing any squash.
Then you clean them out. I like to save all the seeds and dry them out for summer planting. But that is another post entirely.
Next we take butter and smother it all over, I use a spoon and spread it around.
Then I take some of that wonderful Liquid Gold and put some about half a cup in a small bowl and put in the microwave for a minute, makes it easier to spread when it is heated.
Then you pour it all over the the top and the insides forming a small pool in the bottom.
Then you put them into the oven at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes, or until soft to insert a fork. Let cool and scoop out the squash from the rind of the shell.
And there you have it. A sweet tasting squash to enjoy for supper. Just dab a little butter on top while it is still warm, and serve.
Happy "Maple Syrup Squash" Trails
