Day 22, Squash & Apple Bake (93...Free!)

Here's another delicious recipe from my mother-in-law. It's economical...but the best thing is that kids (and husbands!) will EAT IT! ;) Again, our cost was pennies...using our home-grown apples and squash.

Squash & Apple Bake
-my mother-in-law

2 lbs butternut squash
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. butter/margarine, melted (I used much less and just dabbed pea size chunks over the top)
1 T. flour (I used gluten-free)
1 t. salt
1/2 t. mace (or less)
2 baking apples, cored and cut into slices or chunks
raisins (optional, but yummy)

Heat oven to 350. Cut each squash in half. Remove seeds and fibers. Peel squash. Cut into 1/2" slices. Arrange squash in ungreased baking dish, approximately 7"x 11".

Stir together dry ingredients (with raisins if using them). Arrange apple slices/chunks on top of squash. Sprinkle dry ingredients over all. Drizzle with butter. Cover with foil. Bake 50-60 minutes or until squash is tender.

Note: This is the only recipe I have that I use "mace" for...it's a spice. I keep a tiny container in the freezer. I would think that a similar amount of cinnamon or a reduced amount of nutmeg would also work. Maybe even pumpkin pie spice. ;)
