  • Cut squash in half; remove seeds and fibers. Place cut side down on baking sheet and bake about 1 hour.
  • Combine cranberries, 1/2 cup apple juice, sugar, cloves and nutmeg. Cook over low heat until cranberry skins pop.
  • Combine remaining apple juice with cornstarch, mixing well. Gradually stir into cranberry mixture. Heat just until thickened.
  • Spoon cranberry mixture into squash halves and sprinkle with chopped walnuts. Return to oven and bake until heated through, about 20 minutes.
  • To microwave: Cover squash halves with plastic wrap. Microwave on 100% power 12-18 minutes, until soft to touch.
  • Cook cranberry mixture on 100% power 8-12 minutes, stirring once or twice.
