The healthiest eating is always what is in season. Acorn Squash is plentiful now from the garden and the farmers market.
The pears are so juicy and sweet and were a little harder to find organic. It might be time to grow a pear tree!!
When combined together with all natural and wholesome ingredients you will have a quick and easy meal.
It's time to get that kitchen filled with scents of fall with freshly grated cinnamon and honey.
2 In Season Pears
Raw Local Honey
Crushed Walnuts or Pecans
Raw Pure Cane Sugar
Bake at 350
Slice the acorn squash in half and remove the seeds. (Chickens Love Them!)
Peel and core Pears. (A TREAT for the chickens!) Sliced them thin and put them in a bowl.
Chopped the dry apricots. I used approximately 8 of them.
Crush the Walnuts. I used a couple large tablespoons of them.
The honey and sugar to taste and I used 1 tablespoon of butter per half.
The cinnamon is to taste as well. I love it and used a good tsp. of it. Plus I sprinkled a little on top after they were stuffed.
Mix everything together in your bowl and scoop it out to stuff your squash.
Mine took about one hour in the oven on 350. Test it with a fork to check if it is tender.
I covered them the last 1/2 hour with foil so the pears didn't burn.
