    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.
