The idea for a pie kit came from a project we worked on for the film Labor Day. It starred Kate Winslet, Josh Brolin and a pretty intense peach pie. The peach pie making kit we produced was a hit all over the country, with one caveat - what about apples? This version will make happy homemade memories for the holidays and beyond.
The ingredients are easy enough to find, but ones I don't always think of using. On it's own or paired with pork chops, eggs or rice it it makes an elegant meal. Looking for something out of the ordinary to go with this year's Turkey? Look no further.
- 2 Delicata squash
- Olive oil
- 1 lime
- 1/2cup dried currants
- 1/2crisp apple, peeled, seeded, very small dice (I used Pink Lady)
- 1fennel bulb, outer layer removed, very small dice
- 1cup apple cider
- 1tablespoon Calvados
Slice the ends off of the squash. Slice into 1/2" rings and remove the seeds with a spoon. Reserve the seeds for another use or roast them with some cayenne pepper, salt, and cumin and sprinkle over the finished dish.
