Iron chef challenge #2, Scrumptious squash with rosemary roasted apples!

Leave a comment

I didn’t think I was going to have time for this challenge on engine2extra.com between assignments for eCornell and making a dish to take to a going away party for the Sickler family who is a part of our local Engine 2 group and was featured in one of my blogs recently, “Meet the Sicklers.”

I really didn’t know what I was going to do with the ingredients once I roasted the squash, apples, and rosemary. I decided after they came out of the oven and in a flurry of mess making cooking merriment, this is what I came up with right before I jumped in the shower:

I cut 2 acorn squash in 1/2 and roasted them skin side up until they were fork tender at 350° along with 3 cored apples with sprigs of rosemary on top and some on the baking tray. I peeled the skin off of the squash and put the squash in the food processor with the rosemary and some thyme and about a tbs of maple syrup. Then I placed the squash in a pretty dish and saved a ring of squash to place on top. Lastly, I sliced the apples and placed them around the flowery ring of squash, et voila! And it was fun!
