This was delicious. The rare times I have eaten squash, never liked them. However, this recipe is excellent! I have become a fan of squash thanks to this recipe!

I purchased an acorn squash for the first time and was looking for an easy recipe and stumbled onto your video. I appreciated the step-by-step instructions and pace of the video. I prepared the squash as directed and they were absolutely delicious! (I didn't have any maple syrup so I used white corn syrup instead.) Thank you! Gonna fix this for Thanksgiving.

I used pinapple juice instead of orange juice. Also I did not have maple syrup, so I used molasses instead. Hope it turns out well!
