Acorn Squash with Red Onion and Currants

Here in New England, USA, our family traditon is to eat it right out of the peel. Much neater, especially when served on a separate plate, such as a saucer. Our recipe is much simpler, though not as exotic. Halve lengthwise half as many squash as diners and scoop out the seeds. Put in 1 to 1-1/2 tablespoons of butter, a few dried cranberries (sweetened or not, as you prefer), ground, toasted almonds to taste, and pour in 2-3 tablespoons of maple syrup. Brush the top edges with a little melted butter. Place on foil-covered (shiny side up) sheet with 1" sides (to contain any juices that run off). Bake (roast) for 30-40 minutes at 350 to 400 until squash is easily pierced with a fork. The time depends on the size and thickness of the cut squash. Lightly cover with foil if top starts to brown too much.
