Diabetic Acorn Squash

This diabetic acorn squash recipe is sure to be a hit this Thanksgiving. I have even fixed it for our big Christmas celebration. Easy, simple ingredients that will make your holiday's a little more simple.

When picking an acorn squash at the grocery store. Make sure it does not have any soft spots. It's really hard to judge a good acorn squash so inspect carefully. If it displays too much orange, that means it's overripe and will be very dry. If it's skin is shiny that means it was picked before it was ready. Look for dull skin, and a good balance between green and orange coloring.
