Squash With Orange

Recipe from "Kid Favorites Made Healthy"

butternut squash (can also use delicata, but butternut is better in this recipe)

1/3 cup orange juice

1 Tablespoon maple syrup (brown sugar probably would work, too)

a dash of cinnamon

1 Tablespoon butter

Cut squash in half vertically.  Remove seeds and "guts."  Peel with vegetable peeler or large  knife.  (I usually find peeling easier if the squash is first cut in half horizontally.)  Then chop squash into 1" cubes.  Grease 2-3 quart baking dish and put squash in it.

In a separate container, mix orange juice, maple syrup, and cinnamon, then pour over squash.  Dot with butter.  Bake in oven preheated to 425 degrees for 30-40 minutes, stirring once partway through.  The squash is done when it is tender when pricked with a fork.
