 Ingredients List

  • 4 lg Sweet potatoes,
  • -peeled and diced
  • 1 Butternut squash,
  • -peeled and diced
  • 4 Tart apples, peeled,
  • -cored and diced
  • 1/3 c Passover wine, sweet, red

  • -halved
  • 1/3 c Water
  • 1/3 c Sugar
  • 1 ts Cinnamon, ground
  • 1/2 ts Nutmeg, ground
  • 1/2 ts Ginger, ground


Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well to distribute the
liquid evenly. Dump into a baking dish and seal the baking dish tightly
with aluminum foil and a lid. Bake 1 hour at 350 F. Cool.

To serve, reheat, then empty into a serving dish. Don't serve it out of the
pan you cooked it in (the movement into the serving dish squeezes juices
out of the fruit).
