The cooler months are prime time for squash. Pumpkins may get all the glory at Halloween, but there are many other versatile, vividly colored, flavorful, and nutrient-packed varieties to brighten up fall and winter meals.
Acorn Squash is a squash with a sweeter, denser, yellow-orange flesh inside, and more firm in texture than summer squash or zucchini. It is high in nutrients like potassium, magnesium, even iron and calcium, and Vitamins A, C, and B-6. It is also high in dietary fiber. And while that is all well and good (get it, "well") the fruit of the squash is delicious,and can be prepared most commonly baked, but also sauteed, steamed, and even microwaved. Squash takes well to a wide spectrum of seasonings and can be true crowd-pleasers when used in soups, casseroles, risotto, and lasagna.
For an accompaniment to roast turkey, prime rib or roast pork, and ham try this recipe for Cranberry-Stuffed Acorn Squash as a side dish. It is festive enough for all your holiday meals and all winter long. Wash 2-3 acorn squash and pat dry, cut it in half, discard seeds. Place the squash, cut side down in a microwaveable baking pan with 1/2 inch water in pan and microwave on high until the shell is fork-tender or place cut side down in a 15 inch X 10 inch X 1 inch baking pan with 1/2 inch water in pan and bake for 30 mins. until fork tender . Meanwhile, combine 1 cup cranberries chopped, 1 medium tart apple chopped, 1/4 cup walnuts chopped, 2/3 cup brown sugar, and 1/4 cup butter (melted). Drain pan of water: turn squash cut-side up, sprinkle with salt, stuff with mixture and bake 25 mins. longer until tender
Bert's Red Apple has been a fixture in the Madison Park neighborhood for generations. When Bert first started his grocery business in the late 1930's, he was founding a family run business that would not only be dedicated to providing excellent products and service, but also to serving the Madison Park community. Bert set the standard of a caring and compassionate small-business owner that we strive to match every day. Learn more about the history of Bert's Red Apple on our About Us page.
