3 ½ pounds butternut squash, peeled, halved lengthwise, seeded, and cut into ½-inch dice
3 large fennel bulbs, halved lengthwise, cored, and cut into ½-inch dice, fronds reserved
3 crisp apples such as Fuji or Granny Smith, peeled, cored, and cut into ½-inch dice
¾ cup dried organic cranberries
½ cup finely minced pancetta (optional)
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
1 tablespoon chopped reserved fennel fronds or fennel pollen
Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place the squash, fennel, apples, cranberries, and pancetta, if using, on a rimmed baking sheet. Place the olive oil and maple syrup in a small bowl, and whisk to combine. Pour the oil mixture over the vegetables and toss to coat. Add the thyme and fennel fronds, and season with coarse sea salt and black pepper to taste. Spread the mixture out. Do not crowd the vegetables as this will cause them to steam rather than brown—use two pans or cook in batches if necessary. Roast the vegetables until they are lightly caramelized and tender, 30 to 45 minutes. As they are roasting, shake the baking sheet or stir the vegetables occasionally so they develop a crisp crust on each side. Transfer the vegetables to a warmed platter and serve immediately.
