  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon finely shredded orange peel
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Scrub squash; halve lengthwise and remove seeds. Place halves, cut side up, in a large roasting pan. In a mixing bowl combine brown sugar, molasses, margarine or butter, orange peel, cinnamon, and cloves. Spoon mixture into squash halves. Bake, covered, in a 350 degree F. oven for 40 minutes.
