Half-Baked Tart Squash



2 (1-pound) acorn squash

3/4 cup fresh or frozen cranberries

3 T orange juice

3 T brown sugar

2 T butter

1 tsp lemon juice


Wash squash and cut in half. Remove seeds and place cut side down into a shallow baking dish containing the water.

Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. While cooking combine other ingredients, in a sauce pan, cook over medium heat.  Don’t be alarmed if you have fresh berries when the pop.  They are not shooting at you, they just have an air pocket that needs to escape a lot like Joan.

Turn cut side up. Put equal amounts of the sauce into the partially baked squash, and return to oven and bake 15 minutes longer.
