Ingredients

4 acorn squash, halved lengthwise, seeds and membranes removed

1/4 cup melted butter

Salt and freshly ground pepper

4 cups fresh orange juice

1/2 cup light brown sugar

4 whole allspice berries

1 stick cinnamon

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Brush the cut side of each acorn squash with the butter and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place squash, cut-side down, on a baking sheet and bake until almost tender, about 30 minutes.
  3. While the squash is baking, combine the orange juice, brown sugar, allspice, and cinnamon in a medium saucepan. Cook over high heat until reduced to 1 cup, stirring often.
  4. Preheat the grill to medium-high. Place the squash, cut side up, on the grill, and brush with the orange glaze. Cook for 5 minutes, turn over with tongs, and grill for 5 more minutes, or until tender and glaze is caramelized. Remove from the grill and brush with more of the glaze. Serve warm.
