Step 1

Cut squash in half lengthwise; remove and discard seeds. Place cut-sides-down in buttered baking pan. Add boiling water to a depth of 1/4 inch.
Cover with foil. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes, just until cooked through but still firm. Carefully remove foil and pour off water.

In small saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Stir in honey, apricots, almonds, cinnamon and nutmeg.

Turn squash cut-sides-up and fill with apricot mixture.

Bake uncovered, 20-25 minutes longer, until squash is tender and the filling is bubbly.
