Excellent. All of my children loved it including my picky 13 y/o and 4 y/o boys who don't like squash. I didn't have any rum so I substituted 1 1/2 tsp rum extract which is less than the recommended substitution. However, I did not want it to be overpowering for the kids. They are already requesting I make it again.

I add some cranberries to enhance the color the dish. This is an easy prepared dish. It tastes sweet, especially good when eat with salty foods. I love its simple and original taste of butternut squash.

This is a great way to prepare butternut squash. We added cranberries also. And I didn't have any dark room, so we used light room and it still came out good.

I was a little rough with the tender squash and as it broke apart it wasn't so pretty. I mashed it together with the glaze I also added a sweet potato to bulk it up for a large crowd. It was fantastic. Very flavourful and sweet. I will make again.

I thought this would have more of a maple flavor but I couldn't really taste it. All I could really taste when it was done was the rum flavor. I couldn't taste the nutmeg either. Maybe I just had a really huge squash??
