I really liked this! My husband doesn't like sweet side dishes much, but still ate all of his, which I think is a good sign. I used maple syrup instead of brown sugar (and left out the butter). It was so easy!
Great recipe! I might increase the amount of apple and brown sugar. This is a good twist on acorn squash.
This was soooo good with braised pork chops and fresh green beans. I used Craisins instead of fresh cranberries and fresh orange zest instead of orange rind. It was delicious.
