Excellent. All of my children loved it including my picky 13 y/o and 4 y/o boys who don't like squash. I didn't have any rum so I substituted 1 1/2 tsp rum extract which is less than the recom...

It was good, but not spectacular like I was hoping. It took a lot longer to make this than I expected too. My squash was not soft after 15 minutes of simmering...maybe my slices were too thick...

This is a great way to prepare butternut squash. We added cranberries also. And I didn't have any dark room, so we used light room and it still came out good.

I loved this and would give it a 5 star from me but my kids still didn't eat it. Made it exactly like the recipe. The cranberries were the kids favorite part.

every one loved it!

Quick, easy and delicious!
