"This was absolutely wonderful tasting with a mild maple flavor. It would certainly be a great dish for Thanksgiving as it enough to feed a crowd! It was a bit heavy on the currants and a little light on the apples, but otherwise great harvest comfort food. Thanks, NurseDi!"
"What a wonderful treat this is! Absolutely delicious! I made it as stated with one exception. There was a fair amount of liquid left in the pan after everything was cooked. So, I drained it into a small skillet and cooked it down to a syrupy stage and then stirred it back in. Wonderful! Perfect for Fall. We will enjoy this often. Thanks!!"
"This dish was very impressive and I am so excited to have found something new to serve for Thanksgiving. We usually have the same old thing and this squash and apple dish will shake things up. Has a great, mild maple flavor. Thumbs up from the Dennisons."
"I didn't add the currants (didn't have any) and added 1/2 a cup of chopped pecans on top. I pre-made this and popped it in the fridge for 2 hours and baked as written. Very sweet dish (A bit strange for us Aussies as main meals are savoury), but still delicious. This was the first dish to go tonight and it got many compliments. Thanks for posting."
"Easy to make but too sweet for me."
"This was delicious! It makes a sweet side dish, and could easily be made into a dessert. I had to make a few changes: I had to substitute Craisins for currants but that worked out perfectly. Also, I used about 1/2 of the recommended squash and apples, but I kept the measurements on the sauce and spices the same. I was going to reduce the juice into a syrup like Normaone recommended in another review. Instead, I ended up using the extra juice to save another recipe. :) Since it baked in so much juice, my recipe may have ended up sweeter than the original; I'm not sure. Either way, I'll be using this recipe again."
"Enjoyed this Butternut Squash with Apples, etc. It was the color for Thanksgiving and gives a different taste to tempt the pallet this holiday."
"I turned this dish into a dessert and it was delicious! I wanted a quick dessert with my left over butternut squash, so just mixed cooked squash in with apple bits, mixed in pecans, topped with butter pats and poured maple syrup evenly over top. ommited currants, and added cinnamin and clove along with nutmeg. of course ommited pepper as well. Then cooked for only about 1/2 hour and topped with pecan date topping....2cups pecans, 4-5 dates, some vanilla and 1/4 tsp salt or so, mixed together in food processsor. Very good!!"
"I didn't have Currants, Nutmeg, Granny Smith, Pure Maple Syrup, or the Lemon Juice....so I substituted Cinnamon, Red Delicious, more of Ant Jemima Syrup and more butter....Very tasty! Was gonna sub Raisins for the Currants, but didn't have any of those either... :P But I'm going to make this on Thanksgiving this year with some Ham and I think it will be extra tasty!!! Thanks a bunch! ^_^"
"This is a second review - This time I used applesauce and it was wonderfujl Thanks again"
"Very sweet without being so sweet it was unbearable. The craisins plumped up so well. My kids like squash to begin with, but they have already asked for this again."
"REALLY GOOD!!!! I have never tried butternut squash before and had always wanted to so I decided to go for this one. I love it. I couldn't peel it so I left the skin on. I wasn't that crazy about the peel so I will have to figure out a easy way to get it off. I didn't have pure maple syrup to just used Aunt Jemima's. I used regular raisins instead of currants and sprinkled a little bit of sugar over it as well before I mixed everything together. This is an awesome recipe. I am going to surprise my guests at Thanksgiving with this. Thanks for this one. P.S. If anyone can tell me an easy way to peel it, please do. (I tried the peeler gadget but didn't think it worked well)."
"I really liked this. Left the peel on my apples as I like them that way. Had a little bit of trouble finding currants, but I think it was worth it. I forgot the nutmeg, but it was really great without it. Thanks!"
"This was wonderful! I loved the bit of tartness that the currants and lemon juice gave; it was a lovely contrast to the sweetness of the maple syrup, butternut squash, and apples. I'm a little concerned about the amount of butter in it, so I may try to cut back a bit next time -- or not :-). This was so delicious that I'm reluctant to tinker with it. This is a definite keeper, and will probably be part of our Thanksgiving and/or Christmas dinners ... thanks so much for posting it!"
"This dish is a real winner and that is coming from me and my husband. The squash and apples baked so very tender. The maple flavor and spices were the perfect enhancement. I am making this again and taking to my parent's house for Thanksgiving. I can't wait to share it with them. Thanks Nurse Di. "
"This dish typifies fall to me. So delicious and we loved the mixture of butternut squash, apples and currants. The maple syrup really accented the flavors very well. Outstanding and my family really enjoyed eating this one. Thanks Nurse Di."
