Cranberry Sauce for Acorn Squash

Cranberry Sauce for Acorn Squash

"This recipe has been passed around the family for years. A pretty cranberry sauce replaces plain brown sugar as a topping for acorn squash. The squash may be cooked more quickly in the microwave by cooking it on high 5 minutes, cutting it in half, removing the seeds and cooking another 5 minutes, or until tender."

We thought the flavor was delicious. Since alcohol is a concern in our home, I subbed the port wine with orange juice-with great results. Since I was only making one squash, I had quite a bit le...

This was a good recipe for a first-time acorn squash audience. The port that I used was really potent, so I think that kids would have been turned off by the taste, but my guests liked it a lot.
