Clearly I’ve come into some apples lately 😊❤️🍎 it’s FALL!!! Apples are one of the best things about fall. That and butternut squash 😊 (and pumpkin beer but that’s beside the point 😜). Why not combine the two?
I butternut squash
Wash the squash and wrap it in foil. Put it in the slow cooker for about 8 hours on low.
Chop the apples and cook over medium heat in a covered skillet. Sprinkle cinnamon. Stir occasionally and simmer until really mushy! This takes a while, be patient!
When the squash is done, peel it and scoop out the seeds and strings. Chop it up. Mix the applesauce with the squash and mash it up. Taste and add more cinnamon if necessary. If you want you can blend it up or leave it chunky (I like it chunky!).
Serve it as a side dish or just eat it as a snack. Or even eat it for breakfast!
Could be a holiday dish too!
