If you're heading out to your local farmer's market this fall, we bet you'll see a big display of acorn squash. The next time you're wondering how you can cook with this veggie, remember that we've got this Autumn Acorn Squash recipe that's perfect for such occasions! Fall recipes are some of our all-time favorites, and it's a nice way to mix things up after all those apple and pumpkin recipes. Give it a go, and we bet you'll fall in love with it too.

What You'll Need

  • 2 acorn squash, cut in half lengthwise
  • 1 cup maple or pancake syrup
  • 1/4 cup jalapeno pepper jelly
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon or nutmeg

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a 9- x 13-inch baking dish, place squash cut side up.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine maple syrup, jelly, butter, and cinnamon. Coat cut side of squash evenly with syrup mixture.
  3. Bake 1 hour, basting occasionally, or until squash is fork-tender and starts to brown around the edges.


Be careful when you check the squash and remove it from the oven, because the syrup is very hot!

Tuna Twist

We teamed a pasta salad with a tuna salad to come up with this dish that's summertime-perfect and very budget-friendly. Our Tuna Twist is a new take on an old recipe that's great for a light summer dinner. Or you can take this tuna pasta salad to a picnic or potluck (where it'll be the first thing to disappear!).
