DIRECTIONS

  • Cut squash in half and clean out interior (take out all the seeds and stringy part). Cut each half in quarters (4 pieces).
  • In a medium saucepan on medium heat, combine sugar, cinnamon, water and squash. Arrange the squash (skin down) in the sauce pan in a way that allows all the squash to be almost covered in water.
  • Cook on medium heat for about 2 hours, cheking on the squash every 30-45 mins making sure that it is not running out of water. Towards the end the sauce should be a light syrup. Let the squash cool and the syrup thicken for about 10-15 mins before serving. Serve with Vanilla ice cream or whip cream.
