I can’t think of a catchy name for this recipe, but it’s really yummy! It’s ideal as a side dish for meat or chicken but tasty any time.
Baked Winter Squash with Apples
- 6 c. winter squash (peeled, seeded, and cut into 1/4″ thick slices)
- 6 c. Granny Smith apples (peeled, cored, and cut into 1/4″ thick slices)
- 1/2 c. raisins
- 1 t. cinnamon or nutmeg
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1/3 – 1/2 c. honey
- 1/4 c. oil (coconut oil, rendered beef/chicken fat, or butter)
- 1 1/2 T. lemon juice
Cook squash slices in boiling water for several minutes until tender; drain. Combine squash, apples, and raisins and put in greased pan. Mix in seasonings. Put the honey, lemon juice, and whatever oil you’re using together in a small pot; heat on low until honey and fat are both liquid.
Pour the honey mixture over the squash and apple, and mix in well so that all slices are well-coated. Bake at 350 degrees for about an hour or until squash and apples are very tender, stirring occasionally. Serve warm.
