    Annacia's Note:

    The tart flavor of this cranberry-colored glaze perfectly balances the sweetness from any winter squash. If acorn squash is not your favorite, try butternut.

      This is a great recipe for Thanksgiving because it is beautiful and really tasty! Replace the cranberries with this. Those of us who grow squash and are looking for many ways to prepare squash and this recipe is a winner!
      I used apple cider because I had it and didn't use the orange peel and it was wonderful!

      This dish is beautiful to look at! It is tart and my squash wasn't very sweet (I used acorn) and next time I will add a little more brown sugar. This would make a great dish for your Thanksgiving table and my boys enjoyed it. Made for Photo Tag.
