This recipe appealed to Judy who is currently on a squash kick, but not being a big squash fan, Ididn't expect much. This was lovely. She loved it even more than the squash I stuffed with marshmallows a couple weeks ago!
I will give you the easy way and at the end, give you a quick "presentation" idea we did.
So peel and seed the squash (we used a butternut but the recipe actually called for acorn). Dice and boil cubes. Drain squash and mash.
Now for each squash you have used add:
3 tbsp of brown sugar
1 tbsp butter/margarine
1/2 tsp grated orange rind
3 tbsp orange juice
Mash and bake in oven at 350.
Top with toasted nuts (they called for pecans, I used almonds....whatever)
What we did was hollow out the Squash and used the shell as a serving dish. It looked lovely on the table.
