  • “I was a bit wary of the of the ginger and mace working with the maple syrup and cinnamon. The result was so fantastic that I would heat the ingredients together and serve it as a pankcake or desert topping. Thanks, Mirj it’s a wonderfull way to make baked acorn squash.”

  • “The combination of cinnamon, ginger, mace & maple syrup is wonderful. I goofed I peeled the squash – I think it would look more attractive with the rind on. When I reread your recipe Mirj I saw that it did not say to peel.The flavor was great either way Thanks Mirj for another winner”
