A great mix of fall flavors and crockpot simple to boot! This makes a fabulous side dish for pork or chicken and the kids will love it. Feel free to sub vegan margarine for the butter and this turns into a great vegan dish!!! This is best served warm, not hot. The cranberries add an amazing tart dimension to this dish and make it quite festive. Perfect for Thanksgiving, as it can cook all morning in the crockpot. . .SO EASY! For those of you who have a Trader Joes, they sell precut butternut squash!
