SQUASH, ACORN AND APPLE PUREE

Makes 2 servings.
This is an official 5 A Day recipe


1 acorn squash, halved and the seeds and strings discarded
1 Golden Delicious apple, cut into 1-inch pieces
1/2 Tbsp. butter
Freshly grated nutmeg to taste if desired


Arrange the squash, cut sides down, in a glass dish, prick the skin all over with the tip of a sharp knife, and microwave the squash at high power (100%) for 10 minutes.

Put the apple in a 1-or 2-cup glass measuring cup, cover it with microwave-safe plastic wrap, and microwave it and the squash at high power (100%) for 4 to 6 minutes, or until they are tender.

Scoop out the squash, discarding their skin, pour off any liquid from the apple, and force the squash and the apple through the medium disk of a food mill into a bowl.

Stir in the butter, nutmeg, and salt and pepper to taste.
