    William (Uncle Bill) Anatooskin's Note:

    This recipe is from TASTE OF HOME. It is very easy to make and is so very tasty. The orange, lemon zest and spices give it a wonderful flavor. I added some spices and lemon zest to enhance the flavor.

      I really enjoy squash and this recipe sent it over the top in my opinion. I followed Bergy's advice and didn't pre-cook the sauce, just whipped it all together and put in the cavity of the pre-cooked squash. I did make a couple of changes, brown sugar for the granulated and allspice for the nutmeg & cinnamon. It was delicious and great new way to enjoy squash, thanks for sharing.

      Almost 4 1/2 stars. Like another reviewer I found the orange flavour quite strong though not bad, I used orange juice not concentrate. I used dark brown demera sugar crystals and a pinch of allspice instead of nutmeg because of its intoxicant properties. I used salted butter and did not add any extra salt. Like another reviewer I did not precook the glaze and it still glazed the squash.

      This was really good, but I did find that the flavor of the glaze/sauce was a bit intense and the orange flavor subdued the flavor of the spices. I ended up pouring the glaze/sauce that was in the squash off and found I liked this much better. So next time I will use about 1/4-1/2 of the amount of glaze called for, and perhaps up the spices so they can compete better with the orange. I also cooked my squash for 70 minutes total, but I do like my squash to be tender. Thanks for posting.
