Baked Acorn Squash

Figure one serving a person, which is half a squash. 

Wash the squash but don’t peel.  Cut each in half and remove the seeds carefully with a spoon and the strains of pulp that come with the seeds.

Liberally drop a few butter pats onto each and sprinkle with a tiny bit of ginger.

Place squash halves, cut-side up, in a shallow glass pan in an inch of warm water and bake at 350ºF for an hour. Baste at least once with a spoon, drizzling the butter around the top of the squash, while cooking.
