Split the squash in two and remove the seeds, cut in six wedges then cut each wedge in half place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper drizzle 3/4 of the honey on each piece and bake for 35 minutes at 325F or until the skin is soft.  Core the apples and cut in six segments, after 15 minutes of roasting add the apples to the baking sheet and drizzle with the remaining honey.
