ROASTED ACORN SQUASH WITH WILD RICE STUFFING

Delicious dishes can be made with stuffed acorn squash.  Wild rice and cranberries compliment this easy, tasty recipe.

Note: Dried fruit is often treated with sulphur dioxide to extend shelf life and preserve the bright color of the fresh fruit .  Many people say it negatively impacts the taste.  And there are other people who react poorly to sulphur.  For these reasons, I always choose and recommend only unsulphured dried fruit (currants, raisins, cranberries, etc.).
