REC: Maple Glazed Squash

Maple Glazed Squash





2 acorn or butternut squash, halved and cleaned

1/4 cup pure maple syrup

1 Tbsp orange juice, frozen concentrate
1 Tbsp melted butter
1 Tsp powdered ginger, or 1 Tbsp grated fresh ginger root, if desired.


Prepare and bake squash halves, cut side up (make small slice on bottom so they sit flat in pan)

Pierce the shell several times with a fork, then place in a baking pan.

Bake in a 350F oven until the squash gives when squeezed (use a potholder).

Cooking time: one hour or so. (depends on the size of the squash)

When squash begins to soften, (usually 20 minutes or so into cooking time) spoon into its cavity the following:
Mix maple syrup, orange juice and melted butter in small mixing bowl.

Sprinkle with powdered ginger, or 1 Tbsp grated fresh ginger root, if desired. Continue baking for another 15 minutes minimum.


You can also use this recipe for yams or carrots.

It sounds good! Do they make a sugar free maple syrup? I am a diabetic.

Thanks for posting this. It looks easy to make and I think it is something my family might try.
