    I am getting ready to eat this for dinner. I changed the kabocha squash to purple and orange sweet potatoes. The cranberry mixture is making the house smell divine! Just what we needed this cold February evening.

    Just a comment… I haven’t tried this yet, but would love to. I did notice, however, that in the ingredients, it calls for 2 tsp. cinnamon and 1 tsp. ground ginger. In the instructions, it says to add 1 tablespoon cinnamon and 1 tablespoon of ginger. I am guessing the ingredients sound more reasonable. Please clarify. Also, can I use grated ginger, as I have a fresh ginger root in my fridge right now? =) Thank you.
