Reviews for Fruity Acorn Squash
"amazing treat! I didn't have raisins on hand so I used dried blueberries instead. I will make this again when I pick up some raisins. can't wait :)"
"I made this in the oven and it was really good. I did put some butter in the halves at the beginning then later I added the apple, celery, raisins and spices about halfway through. Nice mixture of flavour and texture."
"Also used cranberries for a fall presentation."
"Delicious! This recipe was a good way to use up a couple lone apples. Will definitely be making this one again."
