  • A smooth surfaced squash variety such as butternut or delicata makes peeling easier, but you can successfully use any winter squash. Cut a 2 - 3 lb squash in half and remove the seeds. Peel the squash and cut the squash meat into small cubes - about 3/4".
  • In a non-stick pan large enough to hold the squash cubes easily, melt the butter over medium heat and add the squash. Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt.
  • Stir occasionally, so most of the squash is lightly browned. Continue cooking for 15 minutes.
  • While the squash cooks,cut 2 apples into 3/4" cubes. Peel or not, as you wish. Add the apples to the squash, stirring to mix well. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until both squash and apples are tender - about 10 minutes. Actual cooking time will depend on the variety of apple used. Correct seasoning, if necessary.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature.

"I made this and decided it needed something more. Added just a little bit of maple syrup and a small amount of cinnamon; this seemed to improve it quite a bit without making it too sweet. A friend's 20-month-old who does not usually eat vegetables loved it - and so did the adults."
