How to Prepare the Acorn
• Wash well.
• Cut the Acorn carefully by slicing it down the center creating a safe and flat surface to continue cutting. Place it flesh side down and cut thick rectangular pieces. Cut the rectangular pieces into squares. Cut off the thick exterior skin.
• Season the vegetables and rub or toss with oil and spices. Oiling the squash can helps it to brown and become nice and crispy around the edges.
• Place squash in a baking pan or dish and bake in a preheated oven until done. Baking time differs depending on the size.
Substitutes: You can use any type of onion. I happen to like a red onion. You can use any type of herb. I happen to use parsley. Get creative!
If Acorn is not your thing, here are other winter variations to try:
