How to make roasted butternut squash with apples
In a large bowl, mix together brown sugar, melted butter, flour, salt, cinnamon and mace.
What is mace spice?
Mace (not related at all to the defensive spray) is made from the lacy outer covering of the nutmeg seed and has a more peppery flavor than sweet nutmeg.
Add butternut squash and apples to the bowl, tossing to completely coat. Pour into a prepared baking dish.
Cover and bake for about 1 hour or until squash and apples are fork-tender.
