"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain
This recipe for BAKED ACORN SQUASH WITH APPLES, by Edna Owen, is from Edna's Clippings,
one of the cookbooks created at FamilyCookbookProject.com. We help
families or individuals create heirloom cookbook treasures.
6 large tart apples 1/2 c firmly packed brown sugar 2 tbsp lemon juice 1/4 tsp nutmeg 1/4 tsp cinnamon 1/2 c grated cheddar cheese 4 medium-size acorn squash 8 tsp butter
Wash, pare, core and dice the apples. Add cheese and seasonings. Wash squash and cut in half length-wise. Scoop out seeds and fiber. Cut a thin slice off the bottom of the squash halves so they sit firmly in the pan. Fill the centers with a mound of the apple mixture. Top with a tsp of butter. Pour about 1inch of water into the pan. Cover with aluminum foil and bake in a moderately hot oven, 375º for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until squash is very tender and apples are transparent. Remove foil and top each with a little additional grated cheese. Bake for 5 to 10 minutes more or until cheese melts.
