    GrandmaIsCooking's Note:

    Baking winter squash cut side down in a small amount of water really makes it tender, and eliminates tough spots. This recipe came from a sticker on a squash I bought several years ago.

      good method, but I tried it tonight and didn't check the squash before 35 minutes. They were way overdone before I broiled them, but I wanted to broil anyway to get them brown.

      I tried this tonight on 3 kinds of squash: acorn, delicata, carnival. Also included a dollop of cranberry sauce. The contrasting colors were very pretty. The winner? Delicata. ...although they were all good. :-) We also washed, salted, and roasted the seeds while preheating the oven, and they were great, too!

      What a treat this is! I used Orange/Ginger marmalade. The recipe is, as said, so easy and so tasty
