      Thanks, Alocsin, for stopping by and commenting. I added a new hub yesterday about the Korbel Champagne cellars in Guerneville. Next time you are up this way you might want to check it out, if you like Champagne. Even if you don't, it is a beautiful location to visit and just a few miles from the ocean!

      This is one of my favorite squashes but never thought to pair it with apples and my favorite nut, the pecan. We'll give this a try. Voting this Up and Useful.

      Okay, thanks! I like that you use honey instead of sugar for a healthier recipe. Yes, one of my favorite things about HubPages is meeting such nice writers from all over!

      A friend from Peru-how wonderful that we can make contact with writers from all over the world. Sorry I missed the honey, I am new to writing recipes. 1/4 cup or more to taste.

      I love butternut squash and the pecans and spices sound wonderful. How much honey do you add to the mixture? Thanks for sharing!
