Sweet and Sour Glazed Squash

Sweet and Sour Glazed Squash 6.000

James M. Thresher for The Washington Post

Nov 5, 2008

This is similar to the butternut squash saute in "Jacques Pepin: More Fast Food My Way" (Houghton Mifflin, 2008), but here, acorn squash is treated to the complementary flavors of honey and a good-quality red wine vinegar.


Servings: 6
Ingredients
  • 1 pound acorn squash, cut from stem end to base, seeded and then sliced into 8 equally sized wedges
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons good-quality red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons finely chopped flat-leaf parsley, for garnish

Directions

Use a knife to peel each of the squash wedges, then cut the wedges into 1- to 1 1/2-inch pieces; there should be about 3 cups. Place in a large nonstick skillet over high heat. Add the water and cook/steam, stirring occasionally, for 12 to 15 minutes, until the squash is just tender and can be pierced with the tip of a paring knife.

Season the squash with the salt and stir, then add the honey and vinegar, stirring until the squash is evenly coated. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 to 7 minutes, until the pieces look glazed. Add the butter and stir until it has melted; the squash should be well coated.

Transfer to a serving dish and sprinkle with the chopped parsley; serve hot.
