Baked candied acorn squash

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
2 1 1/4 pound acorn squash halved & seeded
¼ cup Unsalted butter
¼ cup Honey
¼ cup Brown sugar
¼ teaspoon Cinnamon
⅛ teaspoon Ground ginger
¼ teaspoon Ground mace
1 tablespoon Lemon juice
1 tablespoon Pecans -- chopped

Preheat the oven to 350. Arrange the squash cut side up in a shallow baking pan. In saucepan combine the butter, honey, sugar, cinnamon, ginger, mace and cook the mixture over moderate heat, stirring until the sugar is melted. Add the lemon juice and divide the mixture among the squash halves. Add enough hot water to the baking pan to reach ¼" up the sides of the squash and bake the squash in the oven, basting them occasionally with the sugar mixture, for 1 hour.

Remove the squash from the oven and increase the oven temp to 375.

Drain off all but 2 tbsp water from the pan, sprinkle the pecans into each squash and bake the squash, basting them occasionally, in the oven for 15 minutes more, or until they are glazed well and golden.
