Yield: 6 servings
|4||Medium-sized acorn squash|
|8 tablespoons||Butter or margarine|
|Fresh ground pepper to season|
Slice the squash in half crosswise and scoop out the pulp and seeds.
Trim the bottoms, if necessary, so that the quash will stand hollow side up.
Place 2 teaspoons honey in the hollow of each squash, then add 1 tablespoon butter or margarine to each and a twist or two of fresh ground pepper.
Place squash in a large, shallow baking pan and bake, uncovered, in a moderate oven, 350 degrees, for about 2½ hours or until the squash are tender.
