OMG, this was good! I used hokkaido pumpkin and beet molasses, and we both were raving. Made it exactly as written except that I reduced the temperature to 375 °F because my oven is a convection oven. Thanks for sharing, this is a total winner which I'll be making again!!<br/>Made for CQ 2014
We love it! The key is to stir it up 3 or 4 times during roasting to get nice caramelization.
Fantastis flavors! I made only 1/3 of the recipe and prepared it in a frying pan on a stovetop. It turned out perfect! There was just the right amount of sauce, in right consistency.
