Acorn Squash Recipes

Acorn squash is one of the easiest side dishes to serve in the fall and winter.  They store well in a cool place (like a garage, crawl space or root cellar) or on your shelf in the kitchen.  I try to store mine out of the sun and they do well for a few months. The best way to serve is to roast on a sheet pan at 400 degrees for 45 minutes (depending on size).  I add a little water to the bottom of the pan to keep them moist. You can freeze them at this point and reheat on another day. Add a butter, maple syrup, curry or sauce to the top and enjoy.

Here are a few recipes:

Roasted Acorn Squash with Green Tomato Jalapeno Sauce
From Closet Cooking Blog
This is a great blog to follow as they recreate amazing meals and sides each week from a home kitchen. The Green Tomato Jalapeno Sauce is one that I have adapted for my green tomatoes and added green chile instead. This version is great as well and I canned 60 jars last year for holiday gifts.

Curried Squash Soup
From Simply Recipes
If you read this blog, you know that I follow Simply Recipes and re-post a lot of their items.  They are simple recipes that benefit the fresh farm ingredients. This one uses ginger and curry with a butternut squash, but you could cut the acorn squash in the same shape and enjoy the soup.
