Sweet Acorn Squash With Apples and Craisins (Crock Pot)

I was on the search for a crock pot method for acorn squash and wasn't happy with what I found. . .so I took a little from each recipe and created my own. The results were outstanding. If you have any leftovers, simply scoop out the pulp, apples, craisins and mix with juices in crock pot, mash slightly and freeze for a side dish at a later date! This recipe is quite forgiving, so don't worry about measuring everything out exactly. In our house, we eat this as a main course with a small salad on the side.
