Acorn Squash with Rosemary-Dried Fig Compote
Why This Recipe Works
Believe it or not, microwaving took first place in cooking methods for our acorn squash recipe, presenting a squash that was tender and silky smooth, with nary a trace of dryness or stringiness. Hammering out the details of our microwave acorn squash recipe was easy: Microwave on high power for 20 minutes, and the squash is perfectly cooked. It was best to halve and seed the squash before cooking; whole pierced squash cooked unevenly.
