Warm September

Although the first day of autumn is on September 22 this year, fall is definitely in the air...
Every year by the end of summer I am always really excited for fall. I love summer but I'm really looking forward to the fall season.

Well, it's that time of year when the weather can be gloriously warm one minute and chilly the next.

It's that time of year again where everywhere you go you see pumpkins and winter squash.
I love pumpkin everything!
This delicious side dish recipe is perfect for your fall, winter or holiday table.

Orange Peppercorn Squash Wedges

Serves 2-4 as a side vegetable.

Cut a large squash into wedges.
Peel away the skin and remove the pith and seeds.
Place in a baking dish and dab with butter.
For four wedges, dilute 2 tablespoons of marmalade with a little water to form a thin sauce.
Add the juice of an orange and a lemon, and pour over the squash.
Scatter 1-2 teaspoons of coarsely crushed black peppercorns over the whole, and bake for about 40 minutes in a moderate oven, 356 degrees F (180 degrees C) until soft, topping up with extra water if the sauce dries up.

Anyone for squash?

Hope you have a great weekend! xx
