Roasted Acorn Squash with a Bourbon Honey Glaze

Acorn Squash with Jack Daniels Honey Glaze

This recipe incorporates something I had often overlooked, the wonderfully nutrient dense Acorn squash. That is until a neighbor, who was also a gardener, had more on hand than he knew what to do with. Setting out to help my friend with his problem, I discovered that I really enjoyed something that I had previously rarely ever eaten. I am providing this recipe for everyone to enjoy the often overlooked, healthy, versatile, simple, and delicious Acorn squash.

P.S. Slice or dice as a side, or stuff to use as an entree, ENJOY!
