This recipe is VERY autumnal, and also a little bit quirky. I was a little bit worried about the flavor profile (squash? curry? apples?), but it all comes together beautifully. I made changes from the original Better Homes and Gardens recipe, which you might want to consider doing as well. I used two 16-ounce packages of already diced butternut squash--much easier! I also added more chicken broth (probably close to a whole 32-ounce carton), more cider, and added garlic and red pepper flakes.
