This is a very good weekend dish. I did double up on the spices and chopped the prunes into smaller pieces. Personally, I loved just takes time. I served this with a salad on the side.


I used fresh butternut because I think that's the point of cooking in season. A lot of work - but 9cups = 1 large squash if anyone is trying to figure it out.

The recipe was okay - the flavour was good, but not strong enough. I would make this again with the following changes:
1. Double up all the spices.
2. Puree or finely chop the prunes so you get some sweetness in every bite.
3. Do the whole thing in a slow cooker so it's juicier and self bastes.

This might also be fun with a couple of yams thrown in for sweetness but I'm not that good at predicting those sorts of things (grin).
