Crispy Delicata Rings with Currant, Fennel & Apple Relish

Do you know what delicata rings are? Neither do I. I am naive and thought these were onion rings. But of course, I am wrong and what I thought was a fried snack turned out to be a healthy one. Delicata is a squash with a skin that does not need to be peeled.

The squash is presalted to amp up the crispy-potential and sharpened with lime. The relish is cooked in apple cider which brings out the fruit flavors in the delicata.


  • 1/2cup dried currants
  • 1/2crisp apple, peeled, seeded, very small dice (I used Pink Lady)
  • 1fennel bulb, outer layer removed, very small dice
  • 1cup apple cider
  • 1tablespoon Calvados
