CSA Cooking – A Thanksgiving Side Dish

Recently, I got to attend the Thanksgiving veggie potluck with Little Miss and her cousin.  With our busy schedule, I rarely get to attend anymore, and it’s something I really miss.  This month was our early Thanksgiving meal.  Everything was so delicious!  Since I had a hard squash and some pears that needed using, I made this dish.  I loved the sweet and savory combo!

Cranberry Squash Bake


  • 1 large or 2 small hard winter squashes
  • 2 cups chopped pears
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 6 T orange juice
  • 6 T honey
  • 3 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp allspice
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Roast squash just until soft enough to peel and cut more easily (about 30 minutes).
  3. After squash is cooled, cut into cubes and place in 8″x8″ baking pan.
  4. Meanwhile, combine all other ingredients in a bowl.
  5. Pour on top of squash, and bake 45 minutes, until squash is tender.
