Adapted By Brennan's 27 Sep 2018

Serving Size: Serves 4-6


2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil

3 (about 3/4 cup) shallots, halved lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 1/4 inch thick slices

1 (1 3/4 lb) about 4 cups butternut squash, peeled, halved lengthwise, seeded, and cut into 1/2 inch cubes

1/4 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth or water

1/4 cup Brennan’s Apple Cider

1 Tablespoon packed brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon dried sage or 2 tablespoons chopped fresh sage

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons Wine Country Kitchens Balsamic Vinegar

Don’t wait until the holidays to use this squash recipe. This easy recipe complements hearty fall meals like roasted chicken or pork.

Heat oil in 12-inch skillet over moderate heat until hot, but not smoking, then cook shallots and squash, stirring, until shallots are softened, about 5 minutes.

Add broth, cider, brown sugar, sage and salt, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Simmer, covered stirring occasionally, until squash is tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vinegar, salt and pepper to taste.
