We had a freeze night before last, and all the foliage in our garden died.  So we went out and harvested all of our winter squash.  We ended up with 23 squash, some of them are a little small, but still good, I think.



There's butternut, acorn and delicata.  Good mix, I think.

mmm yum! I love squash, but you might not after eating so much of it over the next few weeks! Tongue
My mom used to make acorn squash all the time. She'd scoop out the seeds and put butter and maple syrup inside the hole and then bake them. They were pretty good.

Actually, once the squash is hardened off, it will keep for about three or four months.  So we won't have to eat it all at once.  We'll have it all winter.

As for prep, we do about the same as your mama, except I do butter and brown sugar.  The squash is juicy enough that I don't really need more liquid, although the maple flavoring sounds delish.
