This was very tasty! And apart from making the initial cuts in the squash -- where's my broadsword when I need it?! -- very fast and easy. I substituted a pear for one of the apples, because that's what I had, and that variety was pleasant. Also substituted nutmeg for the mace, as others have recommended ... but next time I think I'll make sure I have mace in the pantry. The nutmeg was fine but I think the mace might have been even better. In the future, I'll probably cut back on, or even eliminate the sugar -- there's so much sweetness in the squash and fruit -- or else possibly add in something tart, like cranberries, or savory, like chunks of Gruyere or bacon or salt ham, to create some additional complexity. I might also increase the amount of flour just a tad -- the mouth-feel of the liquid seemed just a little thin. But overall, this is an easy, delicious, and tremendously nutritious (it's got tons of vitamin A and C) autumn comfort food.
