Maple Squash ‘n’ Apples

I was never a fan of squash. But when I came across this recipe several years ago, I tried making it. My family is glad I did. — Sharon Rink, Appleton, Wisconsin

    8-10 servings


  • 3/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/4 cup apple juice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 3 small butternut squash (about 1-1/2 pounds each)

  • In a small saucepan, combine the syrup, butter and apple juice. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Cook and stir for 5 minutes or until slightly thickened. Remove from the heat; whisk in the cinnamon, salt and allspice. Set aside.
  • Peel squash and cut in half lengthwise; remove seeds. Cut squash into 1/4-inch slices. Place a third of the squash in a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Layer with half of the apples and a third of the squash. Top with alternating slices of remaining apples and squash. Pour syrup mixture over the top.

    Tried this 5 years ago and have been making it ever since. It has even appeared at our holiday table. Guests thought it was a sweet potato dish.
