This was absolutely wonderful tasting with a mild maple flavor. It would certainly be a great dish for Thanksgiving as it enough to feed a crowd! It was a bit heavy on the currants and a little light on the apples, but otherwise great harvest comfort food. Thanks, NurseDi!

What a wonderful treat this is! Absolutely delicious! I made it as stated with one exception. There was a fair amount of liquid left in the pan after everything was cooked. So, I drained it into a small skillet and cooked it down to a syrupy stage and then stirred it back in. Wonderful! Perfect for Fall. We will enjoy this often. Thanks!!

This dish was very impressive and I am so excited to have found something new to serve for Thanksgiving. We usually have the same old thing and this squash and apple dish will shake things up. Has a great, mild maple flavor. Thumbs up from the Dennisons.
