    Unpeeled apple is prettier, but the peeled version (as called for) is tastier - I tried them side by side. For easier measuring, I used 1 Tablespoon butter to 2 Tablespoons honey , which seemed excessive at first, but it did get used when mixing in to eat. Nice recipe. Baking the acorn squash in a loaf pan is super advice! Thank you so much.

    Very good! Loved the cooked apples stirred into the cooked squash while enjoying this side dish. One note, the squash wasn't done after full hour of cooking. Removed them from oven and microwaved, covered with saran in microwave safe dish for an additional 5 minutes. Turned out perfect.
