Winter squash....the sweetest of winter.....at kitchen! kitchen!

Winter Squash...the sweetest of winter...
roasted then drizzled with balsamic reduction.
Sweet, healthy and delicious!
Winter squash is one of my favorite winter vegetable....it satisfies my sugar cravings, easy to prepare and simply delicious as a side dish.

One whole winter squash (acorn squash) The rind of this squash is difficult to cut....be very careful.
What I do is cut it in half and then in wedges. I leave the rind on when roasting to keep the squash whole and not mushy. Sprinkle some olive oil on the wedges and roast at 350F for about 1/2 hr. until fork tender. While the squash is hot sprinkle some balsamic reduction. Great as a side dish for just about anything. So, instead of potatoes, why not roasted winter squash...the sweetest of winter!

Balsamic Reduction:
1/2 cup of good balsamic vinegar - reduce until thick on a sauce pan add some honey according to desired sweetness and a little olive oil and whisk.
