DELICIOUS! Tagged for PRMR; due June 10th. Sorry my review and photo is very late! When I tagged the recipe I didn't realize it was supposed to be a crock pot recipe. My acorn squash was very large and would not fit into my crock pot without stacking. I used orange juice concentrate, cut the butter in half, and baked the stuffed squash halves at 350F for 40 minutes. The brown sugar was just enough to candy the pecans! I really liked the freshly grated nutmeg with the orange and pecans.
