How to Make Harvest Squash
- 1Preheat oven to 325.
Prepare squash by cutting in half. Remove seeds and membranes. Score squash by making 1/4 inch deep slices approximately 1/2 inch apart in a criss-cross pattern. Do not go all the way through the shell. Bake squash halves at 325 for 30 minutes.
- 2While squash is baking, prepare filling. Peel, core, and chop apples. Toss apples with raisins and lemon juice. Set aside.
- 3Just before removing squash from oven prepare glaze. Combine butter, brown sugar, maple syrup, and cinnamon in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir frequently. Bring to a boil. Boil for one minute. Remove from heat.
- 4Remove squash from oven.
Drain and discard any liquid in squash cavities. Fill cavities with heaping mounds of apple raisin mixture.
Drizzle glaze mixture over apples and raisins.
Bake at 325 for 45 minutes.
- 5Remove squash from oven, sprinkle lightly with salt and let stand for 5 minutes.
Serve squash in the shell or scoop sqash, apples, and raisins into a serving dish.
