Acorn Squash is by far my favorite food to make.  I was given a surplus last week and had 12 smaller sized ones to make up and freeze.  After cooking, just scoop out the “meat” and put in a freezable container.

Ingredients
  • Acorn Squash Cut in Half and remove the seeds.
  • 1 Tablespoon of Butter per half of Squash
  • 1 Tablespoon of Brown Sugar per half of Squash
Instructions
  1. Place Acorn Squash skin side down in crock-pot.
  2. With a knife, place small cuts from the center of the Acorn Squash to the top without cutting thru the skin. This will allow the butter and sugar to penetrate the Squash.
