: Alrighty then! I did the squash (or "gourd" as my family called it) with the butter and brown suger. I felt so 18th century. The dish looked beautiful. Just like something out of Country Living. Unfortunately, it still tasted like a vegetable. Where did I go wrong? Maybe I should stick with pumpkin pie.
If you want the squash to taste less like a vegetable add chopped apples & maple syrup. (Traditional New England fare ...) I'm not a micro cook so (still very CONVENTIONAL!) - just cover it w/foil & bake it at 350 F. Butternut & Spaghetti Squash are the two best choices for this. The other squashes really are better prepared as vegetables. Try stuffing the Acorn Squash with a cornbread stuffing just as you would a turkey!
