Baked Acorn Squash with Balsamic Fig Sauce

I meant to cook this acorn squash that had been sitting in my fridge for a few weeks. Luckily it was still good.

Acorn Squash
Bake 2 halves of a greased (brush with 2tbsp of melted butter) acorn squash cut side up in a pre-heated oven at 375F degrees for 40-50 mins or until tender. Place another small piece of butter on the squash cavity immediately after removing them from the oven.

Balsamic Fig Sauce
This sauce is so awesome. You can serve this with ice cream too.

Ingredients

  • 10 Dried figs, chopped
  • 6 tbsp of brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp of cinnamon or pumpkin spice 
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 cup water

Method
Combine all of the ingredients in a non-reactive pot and  boil over medium heat until the sauce caramelizes. Stir often.
