      We ate this until we bursting, then when I was cleaning the table, I took a couple more bites!! It is an excellent acorn squash recipe. I added just a dash of dried cloves to the spice mix. I baked this covered until the final 15 minutes, then I uncovered it and let it crisp up a little. I recommend this recipe to all who love squash, I will also try it with butternut.

      I've finally found a squash recipe that my kids will eat! All the flavors compliment each other very well in this recipe. I used a different type of winter squash (not sure of the name of came from our CSA) rather than acorn squash. Like some of the other reviewers, I left it uncovered for the last 15 minutes. Additionally, I tossed on a handful of unsalted walnuts for those last 15 minutes. That was just enough time for them to toast in the oven and to get slightly glazed with the sugar mixture - yum! Thanks, Bev!

      Another delicious squash recipe - the spice mix was perfect with the rum & butter! Other than using light amber rum & leaving uncovered in the last 15 minutes, I followed the recipe exactly. Thanx Bev!
