I put the whole squash in a pot of boiling water and simmer for about half an hour. This makes them easy to slice in half and roasting time is less.
After cutting them in half place them in a foil lined pan and poke with a fork to let the butter and sugar seep in while baking.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper if you like.
Add about 2T butter and 2T brown sugar or maple syrup to each half. We didn't have maple syrup, that is what I really wanted to use. Papa and David put honey on theirs, but then David will eat anything with honey on it!
Bake for about 1 hour, checking with a fork, they will be tender and very soft when done. Fluff up the centers and mix with the juices. Enjoy!
