Baked Acorn Squash
Pure Maple Syrup
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Half each squash, then scrape out the seeds and stringy membranes. Sprinkle each half with salt. Add a generous tablespoon of butter to the center of each squash. Add 2 to 3 heaping tablespoons brown sugar. Drizzle squash with maple syrup. Pour 2 cups water in the bottom of the baking pan. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes.
Remove foil and bake an additional 30-45 minutes, or until squash is golden brown.
In the last 5 minutes of baking, turn on the broiler and allow tops to get a little more brown and the butter/sugar mixture to bubble.
Serve on a platter
