Add something distinctive to your family's Caribbean night! Serve squash flavored with peach, coconut, ginger and spice - baked into a crunchy side dish!
buttercup squash (2 to 2 1/2 lb)
tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
tablespoons peach or apricot preserves
tablespoons graham cracker crumbs
tablespoons shredded coconut
teaspoon ground ginger
teaspoon ground allspice
Heat oven to 350°F. Cut squash into quarters; remove seeds and fibers. In ungreased 13x9-inch pan, place squash, cut sides up.
In small bowl, mix butter and preserves. Brush about half of preserves mixture over cut sides of squash pieces. In another small bowl, mix remaining ingredients; sprinkle over squash. Drizzle with remaining preserves mixture.
Bake uncovered 45 to 60 minutes or until tender.
Depending on where you live,varieties of squash can vary. Two acron squash (1 to 1 1/2 pounds each) can be substituted for the buttercup squash.
Certain flavors are destined for one another, and so it is with grilled pork chops, as pork roast or a pork tenderloin-any one of them would be perfect to go along with this sweetly spiced squash.
