Acorn Squash with Orange Marmalade

Acorn Squash with Orange Marmalade is a quick, easy vegetable side dish that has great appeal due to its slight sweetness.

Procedure

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (204°C).
  2. Remove seeds and strings from squash halves.
  3. Cut a small piece off outside of each half to make a flat space on which the half can stand level.
  4. Place halves in a shallow pan or casserole in 1/4 inch (6 mm) water with insides facing down. Bake for 35 minutes.
  5. Combine marmalade and butter in a small bowl.
  6. Remove squash from oven, invert in pan or dish. Salt lightly.
