Expert Tips

  • To make the squash bowls as shown in the photo, cut round winter squash, such as acorn or buttercup, in half; remove seeds and fibers. Cook squash halves as desired before filling, or use uncooked.
  • Instead of the beer, you can use 1 1/2 cups water mixed with 1 1/2 teaspoons vegetable or chicken bouillon granules.
