“Fragrant with spices and rich with the interplay of sweetly tart flavors. This simple pork dish is a perfect fall or winter meal. Serve it with a wild rice pilaf and some steamed greens. Complete the experience with a glass of Merlot. For a simple dessert serve some sliced fresh pears, sprinkle them with crumbled gorgonzola and dribble them with maple syrup.” - by Lola

"I love this dish. It has all the wonderful flavors of fall. The butternut squash takes on a wonderful sweet taste due to the brown sugar and spices. I used apple cider the last time I made it as that ..." See moreis what I had on hand and it made the flavor even more intense."
"It definitely is a sweet main dish, so don't forget to make some sides to even it out. Uncle Ben's long grain and wild rice went very well. I made a few teeny changes, no mace, cranberries, or apple..." See more juice... so I used cardamom, dried dates and apple cider. For a prettier presentation, slice the squash into french fry shapes, and leave the apples in wedge shapes. All the cubing is ugly and a lot more work..."
