Was looking for something warming for a dinner with my best friend and Gluwein and came across this recipe. Time did not permit that I cook so my fiance did it two days before, let it cook for a day or so on low, and wow, what a winner.

  • 1 (3 1/2) pound butternut squash - peeled, seeded, and cut into 2-inch cubes
  • 1 cup water

You can substitute 3 regular garlic cloves for the elephant garlic.


  1. 5.16.21 I must say when I started with a pot FULL of chopped onion, I had my doubts. I followed this recipe to the letter and cooked for 1-1/2 hours.
