A Must Try!!

We were out for dinner at a local restaurant and noticed the Georgia Organics Local Food Guide Magazine. After reading about some of Georgia's dedicated farmers and where you can buy their produce we moved to the recipe section. All recipes spotlighting fruits and vegetables that are currently in season. Here is the one we thought sounded too good to pass up!

Acorn Squash with Pecans and Goat Cheese

2 acorn squash, halved and seeded
3 tbsp. butter, melted
2/3 cups pecans chopped
2 tbsp. sorghum syrup, and then some to drizzle on top
2 springs of fresh thyme
4 oz. fresh goat cheese
Heat oven to 375. Sprinkle inside of squash with salt and brush with butter. Turn upside down on baking sheet and bake until tender about 30 - 40 minutes.

Using a small bowl, combine pecans, syrup and thyme.

Turn squash upright on baking sheet. Fill hollow of each squash with pecan mixture, reserving about 3 tablespoons for top. Divide the goat cheese between the squash halves. Sprinkle with reserved pecan mixture. Bake an additional 10 minutes more or until goat cheese is melted. Drizzle with additional syrup if desired and serve immediately.

All I can say is WOW, that is good!

This looks great! Do you think you can substitute molasses for the sorghum syrup?
