Just in time for Turkey Day, my favorite squash recipe:

6 whole acorn squash
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
3/4 tsp. ginger
3/4 tsp. mace
6 Tbs. butter or margarine, melted
1 Tbs. cider vinegar
6 Tbs. maple syrup**

Preheat oven to 350F.  Split each squash in half lengthwise; scoop
out and discard seeds and fiber from centers.  Slice a thin piece
from each bottom so they will rest flat in the pan.  Place squash
in a shallow baking dish.  Mix spices together and sprinkle over
squash.  Mix melted butter with vinegar; drizzle over squash.
Add 1/2 Tbs. maple syrup to each cavity.  Cover dish with foil
and bake for 1 and 3/4 hours.  Remove foil; baste.  Return to oven
for 10 minutes.  Serves 12.

**If you can't get maple syrup in your area, you can substitute 
pancake syrup, or sprinkle the squash with brown sugar before drizzling
with the butter mixture.
