READY IN: 6hrs 15mins
Recipe by venus2

A great slow cooker idea. This is a pretty squash dish even the kids will like. It goes well with roasted pork or pork chops.

This was absolutely gorgeous, sweet and tasty! I used peach jam rather than orange marmalade and made the cranberry sauce from scratch since I have lots of frozen cranberries. It couldn't have been easier to make and the wedges of squash dressed with cranberries and sauce are so beautiful on the plate. Great recipe venus2!
