Delicata Squash and Apples-A Recipe

It is often a challenge to find a unique recipe using winter vegetables. By this time of the year, I am longing for cucumbers and lettuce and all those fresh summer berries. I found this recipe and I would like to share it with you. It is an easy side dish which works well with poultry or a nice pork tenderloin. Double the recipe and it is wonderful as a leftover for  lunch. The recipe calls for bacon but  it can be left out. Bacon adds a salty flavor which compliments the sweetness of the roasted apples.
