Spiced Acorn Squash
This recipe serves:   
3 medium acorn squashes
1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
cinnamon to taste
1 1/2 teaspoons brown sugar
1 pinch nutmeg

Cooking Instructions
1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF.

2. Prick the squash skin with a fork and place in the microwave on high for about 3 minutes. Remove from the microwave and let cool for a few minutes. Cut the squashes in half and place the cut side down in a baking dish for about 40 minutes. Check for doneness by piercing with a fork; there should be little resistance.

3. Scoop the squash flesh from the skin into a bowl and mash with a potato masher or fork, or use a food mill.

4. Add the lemon juice and stir well. Add the cinnamon, brown sugar and nutmeg, to taste.
