  5. Preparation:

  6. Heat oven to 450F. Combine chicken broth, orange juice and allspice in a large saucepan. Add squash; stir well and bring to a simmer over high heat. Reduce heat to medium low; cover and simmer 10 minutes. Stir cranberries and salt into squash mixture; continue simmering uncovered until squash is just tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer squash and cranberries to a serving dish. Boil juices in saucepan over high heat 1 minute or until slightly reduced. Pour over squash; top with pecans.

  7. Meanwhile, place turkey in a foil-lined jelly roll pan. Sprinkle seasoning blend over both sides of turkey. Combine mustard and soy sauce; spoon half of the mixture over turkey. Bake 8 minutes. Turn turkey over; brush remaining mustard mixture over turkey. Continue baking 8 to 10 minutes or until firm to the touch (internal temperature reaches 160F). Transfer to carving board. Carve turkey crosswise into 1/2-inch thick slices; arrange on serving plates and serve with squash.

  8. Substitutions:

  9. Ground cinnamon may replace the allspice and poultry seasoning may replace the Old Bay seasoning blend and extra strong or hot Dijon mustard, such as Vilux brand from France, may replace the Dijon mustard.

  10. Tips:

  11. *Look for fresh cut butternut squash in the produce section of Trader Joe's markets. If not available, purchase a small butternut squash, peel off the skin with a vegetable peeler and use a large sharp knife to cut the squash crosswise into 1/2 inch slices. Discard seeds and cut the slices into 1/2-inch chunks.

  12. **Look for Old Bay Seasoning Blend (often associated with seafood) in the fish department of the supermarket. Old Bay 30% Less Sodium Seasoning is also available.
