MeasureIngredient
12 ounces Whole fresh cranberries; 1 pkg (DO NOT USE CANNED)
1 large Thin-skinned orange;
  Unpeeled, seeded and chopped
1 large Red Delicious apple; unpeeled seeded and chopped
½ cup Water;
½ teaspoon Ground cinnamon;
¼ teaspoon Ginger;
3 tablespoons Sugar;
4 smalls Acorn squash; about 1-1/2lbs to 2-1/4 lbs each

CRANBERRY SAUCE: In a small saucepan, combine cranberries, orange and apple pieces. Add water. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Add cinnamon and ginger; simmer until mixture is soft and stir in sugar.

SQUASH METHOD #1: Cut each squash in half and remove seeds. Place squash, cut side down, in a steamer basket and steam for 15 minutes.

Squash is done when a fork pierces the skin easily.

SQUASH METHOD #2: Slice squash in half. Scoop out the seeds and slice a tiny bit off the bottom of the squash so it will sit on th plate later. Place squash halves cut side down in a glass dish in ⅛" water. Prick the skin with a fork several times. Cover the dish with plastic wrap and microwave for about 3 to 5 times, depending on size of the squash. Squash is done when a fork pierces the skin easily. After either method of preparation, stuff the cranberry mixture into the squash for 5 minutes or microwave for 1 minute.
