Method for Making the Butternut Squash Plum Apple Bake
- In a medium skillet, cook down sliced plums, apples, cinnamon and butter until caramelized. Stir occasionally, but keeping shape of the fruit. SEE NOTE.
- In the same pan, add the spiralized squash over the fruit.
- Cover and cook for 5 minutes until the squash has softened.
- In an 8×8, 9 x11, or a pie plate add the butternut squash, apples and plums into the pan.
- Gentle toss everything together.
- Sprinkle top with cinnamon
- Drizzle with honey to taste.
- Bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 20 minutes or until bubbly.
NOTE: If you use very ripe plums, it will get rather saucy, which is still good, but make sure you use a firm apple so you can see the fruit in the bake.
