Description: Saw this on Food Network. Recipe courtesy of Anne Burrell and it looked so good. Have been making for at least 5 years or more. It was always a lot of work due to how hard it is to cut the butternut squash. Today cut up in the frozen food section.

1  red onion, cut into 1/4-inch dice
1/2 teaspoon  crushed red pepper
4 cups  butternut squash, cut into 1/2-inch dice
1 cup  dried cranberries
1 cup  sugar
1/2 cup  champagne vinegar
1  orange, peel removed in strips with a veggie peeler and cut into 1/4-inch dice
2 talespoons  mustard seeds
1 tablespoon  dried mustard powder
1/2  bunch fresh chives, finely chopped

Instructions: Coat a large straight-sided saute pan with olive oil. Add in the red onions, crushed red pepper, and season with salt. Bring the pan to a medium heat and cook the onions until they are soft and aromatic, 7 to 8 minutes.

Add in the squash, dried cranberries, sugar, champagne vinegar, orange zest, mustard seeds, mustard powder, and season with salt. Stir to combine. Add 1 cup of water and bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove the lid and cook another 15 minutes, stirring the squash frequently until the liquid has evaporated and the squash is a chutney-like consistency. Check to make sure the squash is cooked through and soft but can still hold its shape. Stir in chives and drizzle with mustard oil.

Any types of mushrooms work well here. Sear them in batches, without crowding in a hot skillet so that they will take on color without steaming.
