Apple Stuffed Acorn Squash Recipe
This is an adaptation of a recipe I got from Live Earth Farm CSA.
Apple Stuffed Acorn Squash
1 Acorn Squash
1 Stalk Celery
1/2 Small Onion
2 tsp Butter
2 Tbsp Raisins
Olive Oil for rubbing on squash
Preheat oven to 350
Cut the sqash in half and scoop out the seeds. Rub the cut sides with olive oil and place in a baking dish cut side down. I like to add a little water to the dish to sort of steam the squash, but that is optional. Bake the squash for 25 minutes or so.
Meanwhile, chop your onion and celery into a fine dice. Melt the butter over medium-low heat. Add the onions and celery and cook until pretty soft, but not brown, about 5-7 minutes. Core and chop the apples (about 1/2 inch dice) and add to the onions and celery in the pan. Cook until starting to soften, 5 minutes, then add the raisins. Continue cooking a few minutes to let the raising begin to soften and plump up.
Remove the squash from the oven and turn it cut side up. Fill with the apple mixture and return to the oven. Continue cooking until the squash is completely soft and the top is a bit browned, 20-30 minutes more.
