Kraft Kitchens Tips

Use Your Oven
To cook squash in oven instead of microwave, place unfilled squash halves, cut sides down, in 13x9-inch pan filled with 1/2 inch water. Bake at 375°F 40 to 50 min. or until squash is tender. Scoop squash from shells and continue as directed.
Best of Season
Acorn squash are a popular variety of hard-skinned squash. Choose squash that are heavy for their size. The rinds should be hard, deep-colored and free of spots. Store in a cool, dark, well-ventilated place for up to 1 month.
