This was pretty tasty. I hadn't eaten squash in 30 years (awful childhood memories!) and had never cooked it, so I was eager to see how it would turn out. The flavor was very good and the texture was decent. I passed this recipe on to my mom.

This was easy to make and a wonderful taste. The only adjustment I would make would be to cut back a little on the rum next time.

Very nice side dish for Thanksgiving. They made a lovely presentation on the table as well.
