blog #181 >> Acorn Squash Stuffed with Pears


...and other yummy stuff like butter, brown sugar, golden raisins, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger... mmmm... I've just been on such a fall cooking spurt lately. I'm just dreaming up what to make next. Salmon croquettes maybe?

Mmmm, what's the recipe? I've got acorn squash on my counter that needs to be eaten up.

In reply to Amy at Pets Jubilee:
I didn't really use a recipe on this one. I just cut the acorn squash in half and gutted it, then I cut the pear in half and gutted it. Then I rubbed the inside of the acorn squash with butter and sprinkled brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves on it. Then I stuffed the pears in it and sprinkled them with brown sugar cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves and topped them off with golden raisins. (Allspice would be good too, but I didn't have any.) After that I placed them in a covered baking dish about half full of water and baked them for about 40 minutes at 350 degrees. (It might take longer, prick it with a fork to see when they're done.)
Enjoy!
