3 tablespoons butter

1/2 butternut squash, peeled, seeds removed and cut into 1-inch chunks

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

3 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and chopped into 1-inch chunks

1 cup water

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Heat the butter in a large heavy saute pan over medium-high heat. Add the butternut squash and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Cook until the squash is beginning to caramelize, about 6 to 8 minutes. Add the apples and continue to brown, another 5 minutes. Stir in 1 cup of water and the sugar. Cover, then reduce the heat to medium-low and cook until tender, about 15 minutes. Add the cinnamon and cook until the squash and apples are coated in a deep golden brown glaze, about 5 minutes more. Transfer the stew to a serving bowl and serve.
