Michigan Apple and Butternut Squash Soup


3 cups Michigan Jonagolds or your favorite Michigan Apple, cored and chopped
3 cups butternut squash, peeled and cubed*
1 cup sweet onion, peeled and roughly diced                                      
2 T. Michigan butter
1 T. grated ginger
1/8 t. freshly grated nutmeg
1 ½ cups Michigan Apple cider
3 to 4 cups of liquid (equal parts chicken stock and water), depending upon thickness of soup desired*
salt and pepper to season and taste

In large soup pot, add butter, squash, apples and onion and sauté for 5 to 7 minutes to soften onion.  Add 1 cup of water to help steam squash. Cover pot and simmer for 30 minutes, or until squash is soft.  Blend mixture with a hand immersion blender or in a stand-alone blender or food processor. (If using blender or food processor, process in batches.) Return mixture to the soup pot, add nutmeg, ginger and apple cider and the remaining liquid for desired consistency. Salt and pepper to season and taste. Serve with a small daub of sour cream or Greek plain yogurt on top and with crusty bread.  Enjoy!

*Chef notes:

  • Roasting squash adds a wonderful layer of flavor. Try it. Place squash in oven-proof pan. Add 1-2 T. oil and 1 t. dried sage. Toss squash to coat. Place in 425 degree oven for 30 minutes. Encourage charring of the squash for extra flavor.
  • If you want vegetarian soup, add equal parts water and cider to taste in place of chicken stock. May need extra seasoning and salt.

My husband and i have been quite contented when Edward managed to finish up his analysis via the ideas he was given from your web site. It is now and again perplexing just to happen to be giving freely tricks which often people today have been making money from. And we all take into account we have got the website owner to give thanks to for this. Most of the explanations you have made, the simple site navigation, the relationships you will help instill - it's most great, and it's making our son and our family reckon that that subject matter is pleasurable, and that's really essential. Thank you for the whole lot! ???? ?? http://blog.livedoor.jp/goyardse/

Hypocritical are we? I think that RAT is a bad place for children to live, I have known children that have grown up there that could have turned out alot better if they had lived elsewhere. There are some nice people there, I will admit to that, but there is too much crap that makes up for that. cheap Isabel Marant http://www.century21powers.com/isabel.asp

said Wednesday that there haven't been any crashes or injuries due to the problem. Both pointed out that the malfunctions don't occur all the time, and they don't affect performance of the brakes.Like many automakers, Hyundai and Kia try to use the same parts in as many cars as possible to get a better price from parts suppliers and make manufacturing simpler. karen millen uk http://www.century21powers.com/karenmillen.asp
