Ingredients

  • 2 acorn squash

  • Salt & pepper, to taste

  • 2 Tbsp butter

  • 1 cup yellow onion, chopped

  • 2 apples, unpeeled, cored and cut into quarters

  3. Place the squash face down on the baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes or until a knife cuts through easily. Let cool, remove flesh and place in a bowl. Set aside.

  4. In a frying pan, melt the butter and cook the onion for 5–10 minutes or until soft.

  5. Add the apples, garlic, curry powder, ginger and apple cider vinegar and cook for 2 more minutes.

  7. Reduce heat and let simmer for 15 minutes.
