Use kitchen shears to cut bacon crosswise in 1/8 pieces. Preheat dutch oven on medium-high heat, lightly brown bacon for a couple of minutes.
In the mixer, place cubed butternut squash with water, pulse till blended.
Add the squash mixture, diced apples, and sea salt to the pot with bacon. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for approximately 10-15 minutes.
Before turning the burner off, add the vinegar, stir well. Garnish with pumpkin seeds before serving.
-To keep this recipe healthy, use sugar-free uncured bacon and organic ingredient when possible.
-To save time use frozen pre-cut organic butternut squash, you can find some in the freezer section at Costco.
-These are my favorite sprouted pumpkin seeds.
