This was really good! I tossed in 1/2 of a gigantic apple that I needed to use up. Subbed milk for cream

Cut the apples and squash up into cubes and place in a mixing bowl and marinade them overnight in the brown sugar mixture (use brown sugar instead of cinnamon, and don't mash it up) The apples, once cooked will taste exactly like tender, juicy cinnamon apples(just like the ones from a can in thick syrup! MAJOR YUMMERS! :)
