Delicata Harvest

Enjoy the bounty of an autumn harvest.


  • 4 cups delicata squash, peeled, seeded, and cubed (about 2 medium)
  • 1 1/2 cups apples of your choice, cored and chopped
  • 3/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 pound Italian sausage (if in links, remove casings)
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed Aleppo peppers (optional)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon extract
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon of a neutral cooking oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat the oil in a large pot. Add sausage until it just begins to brown.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients, cover, and bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce to simmer, and cook until the squash is just short of fork tender.
  4. Remove cover and cook until the desired consistency is reached.
  5. Serve alone or over rice.


Any winter squash can be used if you can't find delicata.

Add some kale during the reducing phase.

The addition of more stock makes this a hearty soup.
