Who would have thought it would work?

Me.

One acorn squash
One onion
One clove garlic
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup wine or beer
Two tablespoons olive oil
Two tablespoons chili powder
One tablespoon powdered ginger
1/4 cup molasses
One tablespoon soy sauce
One teaspoon prepared mustard

Peel and cut up the squash into bite sized pieces. Chop onion. Peel and devein garlic before mincing. Place in a bowl and coat with olive oil by tossing. Roast for 15-20 minutes at 450 or until browned on the edges. Let cool enough to handle and place in blender with the liquids. Purée.

Add purée to heavy pot. Also add the rest of the spices. Cook on a low heat for an hour or more until the sauce is reduced to a smooth consistency, add water or more juice or alchohol if it becomes too thick too soon.

Enjoy.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
