Baking a squash is easy to do, quick, and makes for a nice, light (and warm) treat. Dress it up with some Loveless preserves, maple syrup and cinnamon and you have yourself one tasty – and healthy – side dish or dessert.
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Fill a 1 quart casserole dish with ¼-inch of water; set aside.
Cut the acorn squash in half lengthwise and place face down in the casserole dish.
Bake for 35 minutes in preheated oven check to be sure its soft and tender before removing from oven.
Remove from oven and flip the halves over. Remove excess water.
Place 1 tablespoon Preserves, 1 teaspoon Maple Syrup and a sprinkle of cinnamon and salt in each half.
Return to the oven and broil on high for 5 minutes.
