Ingredients (Makes ~ 4 servings)

• 1 Tbs ground cumin
• 1 Tbs ground cardamom
• 1 Tbs ground coriander
• 1 Tbs teaspoon turmeric
• 1 Tbs cinnamon
• 2 tsp freshly ground black pepper, plus more to taste
• 1 tsp of cayenne pepper
• 1 Tbs salt, plus more to taste
• 1 lb lamb stewing meat, trimmed and cut into 1-inch cubes
• 1 small onion, peeled and thinly sliced
• 2 Tbs tomato paste
• 1/2 head garlic, peeled and minced
• 3 cups chicken broth (low-or-no-sodium)
• 1 small butternut squash, peeled, seeds and fibers scooped out, cut into 3/4-inch cubes
• 1 19-ounce can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
• 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
• Toasted Pepitas
• Lime juice as needed


 

Curried Butternut Squash and Lamb Stew simmering on the stove in a green Le Creuset dutch oven.
 

Directions

1

Combine the spices and salt in a bowl. In a separate bowl, add approximately 1/3 of the spice mixture along with the lamb and toss to coat well. Meanwhile, heat approximately 2-3 tsp of olive oil in a dutch oven or large cast-iron pot. Add lamb a few pieces at a time – if the meat is overcrowded, it will not brown properly. Turn the pieces until lamb is browned on all sides, which should take about a few minutes per batch. Add a teaspoon of oil as needed between batches. 

 
2

Once all the meat has been browned, set lamb aside and drain any remaining oil from the pan. Add two teaspoons of oil over medium heat and combine with the remaining spice mixture, stirring constantly. Once the spices become fragrant, add onion to the pot and cook on medium-low heat for 3-5 minutes, or until the onions are translucent and soft. Stir in the garlic and cook for 15 seconds. Add tomatoes paste and cook, stirring constantly until the paste turns a dark rust color. Add the lamb and chicken broth and bring to a boil momentarily before reducing to a slow simmer. Cover and cook until the lamb is tender, about 1 hour. Stir in the squash and chickpeas and cook, covered, for another ten minutes, or until the stew is a thick consistency and the squash is tender.

 
3

Season with salt, pepper and lime juice to taste and garnish with freshly chopped cilantro and toasted pepitas. This dish is wonderful with basmati rice, cous-cous or grilled naan bread.

Pair with 2018 MDNA, Mixed Blacks Red Wine, Dry Creek Valley
Cheers!

Leave It Better than You Found It 🥾

To celebrate, we put together a list of the 5 most underrated National Parks to visit this autumn so you can sport the new gear!

Fall is the BEST time to plan a US National Park vacation. Why? Fewer crowds, perfect temperatures, stunning fall colors, and abundant wildlife!

Turquoise waters at Dry Tortugas National Park.

1. Dry Tortugas National Park 

The best time to visit the Dry Tortugas is during the dry season: November through April. These seven, small islands (only 70 miles and a three-hour boat ride from Key West, Florida) are home to another one of our least-visited national parks, welcoming fewer than 80,000 visitors per year. Dry Tortugas is perfect for snorkeling.  The coral reefs and seagrass beds are still prime habitats for marine life so expect to encounter corals, manatees, turtles (Tortugas), and brilliantly colored fish. Or kayak, fish, sunbathe, camp, or dive and boat along these rad islands!

Waterfalls at Canyonlands National Park.

2. Canyonlands National Park

If hiking is your thing, check out Canyonlands National Park. Quite possibly the most underrated park in Utah, Canyonlands boasts beautiful weather and endless trails for hiking in the Fall. Canyonlands is only 30 minutes from the rustic town of Moab. If it's warm enough, venture to Mill Creek Swimming Hole. You won't be disappointed!

Glaciers at Wrangell-St. Elias National Park.

3. Wrangell-St. Elias National Park

Most folks visit Alaska during the summer but fall is where it's at! Check out some of the state's awesome foliage, peaks upon peaks, and glaciers after glaciers as you drive out towards America's largest national park (equaling six Yellowstones), Wrangell-St.Elias. Partake in glacier hiking and ice climbing or even the drive through the park alone, will make the entire trip to Alaska.

Colorful hills at Death Valley National Park.

4. Death Valley National Park

The hottest, driest and lowest national park, Death Valley is infamous for its blistering summer heat. For that reason, the best time of year to visit is what's considered the offseason in most other parks. October is when the skies clear and camping season begins in the park and there is nothing like a night in the desert under the stars.

5. Great Smoky Mountains National Park

The fall colors at Great Smoky Mountains National Park are incredible, as the red maples, yellow birch, and flowering dogwoods begin to change hues. Take in the views from Clingmans Dome, the highest point in Tennessee.

See y'all on the trail and remember, Never Dream Alone.
