We have acorn squash in the garden for the first time so when the first one got ripe i went looking for recipes. We also have a macintosh apple tree so I used that instead. It didn't take near as long as the the recipe said but it was a small squash. However everyone who tried it liked it and I'm really looking forward to making it again.
I love squash with apple. I omitted the butter and added cinnamon Mmmmmm it was enjoyed
I thought this was ok, but I guess it just didn't excite me. I liked the squash and the apples, but they seemed like two separate items and rather than blending into one dish. Apple lovers might want to give this a try, since they might have a different reaction.
