Acorn Squash with Lemon Honey Jelly, Tex-Mex Style

Sherry Blizzard


Tex-Mex Sweet Salt was a gift from my sister-in-law. It's a blend of sweet and spicy and perfect for all things sweet like acorn squash. The lemon honey jelly was a gift a neighbor made from their lemon trees in the lower 48. Sooooooo yummy! Perfect to join my Christmas dinner Leg of Lamb.

How to Make Acorn Squash with Lemon Honey Jelly, Tex-Mex Style


  1. Cut squash in half--Don't remove the seeds or the membrane. Bake face-up in a preheated 425 oven for 45 minutes.
  2. Remove, let cool. Remove seeds and membrane. Melt butter in microwave. Drizzle over squash halves.
  3. Melt the Lemon Honey Jam in the microwave and spoon over squash halves.
  4. NOTE: I got the Tex-Mex Sweet Salt as a gift for Christmas. It's a great mix of cinnamon, with cayenne, orange peel, sea salt, ginger, cloves and more. It's wonderful with anything a little sweet (like squash). Get yours at Star Dragonfly Herb Company
  5. Sprinkle about a tablespoon or more over the squash halves. Return to the oven to bake at 375 for another 25-30 minutes.
