Here is a recipe of sorts for my Butternut Apple Soup. I
used to own a soup cook book but sold it on Ebay so the recipe
is only what I remember.
Here is what you need..
Heavy Bottomed Soup Pot, Baking Sheet, Blender, Knife, Cutting
1 Big Butternut Squash
2 or 3 Apples (local)
1 Large Spanish Onion
1 Stick of Butter (or olive oil)
2 cloves of Garlic
Chicken Stock (or Vegetable Stock)
Nutmeg, Salt, Pepper, Cayenne, Cinnamon
here is what you do..
Set the Oven to 375
Cut the Squash in half, clean out the seeds and stuff, and
place on a baking sheet, sprinkle with nutmeg, salt, and pepper
to taste.. And maybe a little cayenne if you like things a
little spicy. Put a little butter in the middle of the Squash
Place in the Oven for 45 minutes or until the Squash is Brown
Meanwhile chop up the Onion into chunks
Peel the Apple, take out the Core and chop it up into chunks
Crush the Garlic in a Press or Chop it up Fine
OK now you should find a heavy bottomed soup pot
Over medium high heat melt a chunk of butter, and throw in
the Onion.. sauté until caramelized (clear and starting
to brown) adding butter as you need it.
Add the garlic sauté a minute or two
Add the Apples.. Add some butter if needed..
Things will get a little brown and sticky now... Its at that
point where I am afraid of things burning that I add the Chicken
Stock (or Veg Stock) and turn down the heat.
When the Squash is done use a spoon to remove the Squash
from its skin and put into a separate bowl...
Find a blender.. Add equal parts Squash and Onion mixture
Blend Smooth in batches and add back to Soup Pot...
Season to Taste...salt, pepper, nutmeg
Simmer for a little while on low heat just to get the mixture
