Patti Villers, Fit Fare - I came across this recipe on www.About.com and it sounded interesting. And the acorn squash is in season! A perfect harvest-time dish. Low-fat too! My husband and I taste-tested these rings and they are delicious. The recipe would make a perfect side dish for your Thanksgiving dinner, or as an accompaniment to your leftover meals after the holidays.
Serves: 4 servings
  • 2 acorn squash
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ¼ cup orange marmalade (I used Smucker’s All Fruit – yum!)
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Slice top and bottom from each squash and discard ends. Carefully slice each acorn squash into four rings, making eight rings in all.
  3. Spray a large cookie sheet with cooking spray.
  4. Lay rings on cookie sheet and bake for 15 minutes.
  5. Combine maple syrup, marmalade and ginger in a small bowl.
  6. Remove squash rings from oven and brush with maple syrup mixture. Return to oven and bake for another 15 minutes. Remove from oven and brush with glaze once again. Bake for 10 minutes, or until tender.
