Acorn Squash with Apricot Glaze

Prep Time: 0

Yield: 4

Apples and apricots spiced with honey and nutmeg compliment the flavor of fresh acorn squash.

Ingredients

  • 2 medium acorn squash (1 pound each)
  • 1 medium apple, sliced
  • 2 medium apricots, sliced or 1 peach, peeled and sliced (2/3 cup)
  • 1/4 cup apricot nectar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon margarine or butter

Instructions

  1. Halve squash lengthwise; remove and discard seeds. Place squash, cut side down, in a 2-quart rectangular microwave-safe baking dish. Microcook, uncovered, on 100 percent power (high) for 12 to 16 minutes or till just tender, giving dish a half-turn once.

    Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine apple and apricot slices, nectar, honey, and nutmeg. Turn squash over, cut side up. Spoon fruit mixture into squash cavities. Dot with margarine or butter. Micro-cook, covered with waxed paper, for 4 to 7 minutes or till fruit is hot. Sprinkle with additional nutmeg, if desired.
