Cooking Time30 min


  • 2 medium delicata squash (about 2 pounds) or other winter squash
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup fresh sage, very coarsely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, very coarsely chopped
  • 1 1/2 cup fresh unfiltered apple cider or juice
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons sherry vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste


  1. Peel squash with a vegetable peeler, cut it lengthwise in half, and scrape out the seeds with a spoon. Cut each piece lengthwise in half again, then crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick slices.
  2. Melt the butter in a large (12-inch) skillet over low heat. Add the sage and rosemary and cook, stirring, until the butter just begins to turn golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Do not brown the herbs. Cooking the herbs in butter mellows their flavor and improves the texture.
  3. Add the squash to the skillet, then the apple cider, water, vinegar, and salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, over medium heat at an even boil until the cider has boiled down to a glaze and the squash is tender, 20 to 30 minutes. Taste and season with pepper and additional salt if needed.
