  • 1 acorn squash
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon apple juice


With sharp knife, cut squash in half lengthwise; scoop out seeds and fibres. Place flat side down; cut crosswise into 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick crescents. Arrange in single layer in 13- x 9-inch (3.5 L) baking dish.

In small saucepan, melt together butter, curry powder and salt over medium heat until bubbling; brush over squash. Cover and bake in 375°F (190°C) oven for about 20 minutes or just until tender. (Squash can be prepared to this point, covered and set aside for up to 8 hours.)

Sprinkle squash crescents with apple juice, turning to coat. Bake, uncovered, for about 5 minutes or until tender and glazed.
