2 T butter
1/4 c apple juice

Recipe Directions for Simple Glazed Butternut Squash

  1. Cut the squash in half lengthwise. Place cut side up in a baking dish and cover each half tightly with foil. To the pan, add about 1/2 inch of water. Bake about 40 minutes until easily pierced with a knife but still firm.

  2. When the squash is coll enough to handle, scoop out and discard the seeds. Cut into 3/4 -inch thick sections, then peel and cut into 3/4 - inch chunks.

  3. Combine the remaining ingredients in an extra-wide skillet or stir-fry pan and heat gently, stirring together. Add the squash and turn up the heat to medium-high. Cook, stirring, until the liquid reduces and the squash is nicely glazed, about 10 minutes. Serve at once.
