So named because of its distinctive acorn shape, the acorn squash has ribbed, dark green skin that turns orange with storage. Its orange flesh is mild and sweet. Here, we combine acorn squashes with maple syrup and dried cranberries–favorite flavors of autumn–to create a warming side dish.

Ingredients:


  • 3 acorn squashes, each about 1 1/2 lb.
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 3 Tbs. unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 Tbs. water
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 2 Tbs. finely chopped orange zest
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 Tbs. chopped fresh thyme, plus sprigs
       for garnish
  • 1/4 cup chopped dried cranberries


Wine Pairing

This pairs well with soft, medium-bodied white wines like the Diemersdal MM Louw Sauvignon Blanc, Durbanville from our Wine Club.

Directions:

Preheat an oven to 400°F.

Cut the ends off each squash, then cut the squashes crosswise into slices 1/2 inch thick. Using a biscuit cutter larger that the seeded center of each slice, cut out and discard the seeds, leaving a neat circle. Place the squash rings in a large bowl and season generously with salt and pepper. Toss with 2 Tbs. of the melted butter. Arrange the squash rings in a large ovenproof sauté pan.

In a small bowl, whisk together the 1/4 cup water, orange juice and zest. Pour over the squash rings. Set the pan over medium-high heat, cover and cook until the squash rings are almost tender when pierced with a fork, about 15 minutes.

In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining 1 Tbs. melted butter, the 1 Tbs. water, the maple syrup, chopped thyme and cranberries. Pour over the squash rings. Transfer the pan to the oven and bake, uncovered, until the squash rings are tender when pierced with a fork, 15 to 20 minutes.

Transfer the squash rings to a serving bowl, garnish with the thyme sprigs and serve immediately. Serves 8.
