    Ingredients:

    Serves: 4

    Yield:

    squash ...

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 medium butternut squash
    • 1/2 cup dried apricot, cut in half
    • 1/4 cup raisins (I use thompsons)
    • 1/2 cup orange juice (Tropicana Calcium Fortified, with pulp, is best, you can't taste the pulp here)
    • 2 tablespoons raw sunflower seeds
    • 2 tablespoons raw pumpkin seeds

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Soak the apricots and raisens in the juice overnight. If you forget to do this, no biggie. See below.
    2. 2
      Cut your squash in half, and scoop out the seeds/pulp. Place in a glass pan, cut-side down, and stab each half a few times like you would a potato. Pour on about 1 cm of water, and bake in a 325 F oven about 50 minute (medium squash) or 1 hr and 15 min (large squash- times are approximate guesses). Test with a long knife. You know it's done when it's quite soft all through, but not actually mushy.
    3. 3
      If you didn't soak the fruit, place it with juice in a small pot, bring to a boil and immediately remove from heat. Let sit, covered, while squash bakes.
    4. 4
      5 minute before the squash is done, transfer the fruit mixture to a food processor or mini-chopper if you have one. Pulse a few times, then add the seeds and blend till they're slightly chopped. It should be like a thick, chunky paste.
    5. 5
      Turn squash halves rightside up, scoop the fruit mix in the hollow part, and cover the pan with foil or a glass lid. Bake 10-15 minutes more.
    6. 6
      To serve, divide squash among plates and give each a share of the fruity stuff. Mash it up together, it's really good that way!

      This was a very good squash recipe. Takes a little while to bake so give yourself a little longer lead time. The fruits give it a nice sweat taste. Would make again.

      OUTSTANDING ~ preparation, looks, taste ~ EVERYTHING! I added a FEW more raisins 'cause I like 'em but otherwise followed your preparation steps! I might add a spice or two another time, but the squash does taste great as is! Thanks for posting! [Tagged, made & reviewed for Please Review My Recipe cooking game]
