Miss Annie, I thought this was mighty good! A new way for me to fix squash! With the leftovers I think I will puree this. Thanks for a yummy dish!
We loved this recipe, thank you for sharing it! I didn't cook it as long as specified because I wanted it to still be chunky, so I let it go for maybe 3 hrs in the crock pot. It was wonderful! Then the next day I diced two granny smith apples, cooked those in a saucepan with a little butter and brown sugar until tender, then mixed that into the squash leftovers, put it in a casserole dish, and baked until hot. It was delicious all over again! The apples added a nice touch the second time around so I will try that from the start next time.
Wow, this is a great recipe! I only had 1 squash, but I did the whole recipe, except I only used 3/4 cup raisins. Put it in my small crock pot, it was great! I could eat this every day! Very easy. Thanks Miss Annie, your recipes ROCK!!
