  1. 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.
