Squash, Cider, and Apple Soup

Submitted by: EPS102

Introduction

I found this in the paper, and have very slightly modified it. It's from an man named Haedrich, but I don't have any other information to give him due credit!
My husband took one bite and said "Wow. . . this is fall in a bowl." It really is delicious on cold fall nights.

Ingredients

    2 T unsalted butter
    1 large onion, finely chopped
    3 cups peeled and diced butternut squash
    2 large apples (any kind) peeled, cored, and chopped
    2 cans vegetable broth
    1 can of water (adjust later for desired consistency)
    1 bay leaf
    2 T brown sugar
    1/4 t ground cinnamon
    1/8 t ground cloves
    1 1/2 cups apple cider (NOT apple juice)

Directions

Melt butter in a large stockpot over medium heat. Stir in onion, cover, and cook 10 minutes.
Add squash, apples, broth, bay leaf, sugar, cinnamon, and cloves. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low; simmer, covered until squash and apples are soft, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat.
While soup is simmering, pour cider into a medium skillet. Bring to a boil and cook until reduced to 4 or 5 tablespoons. Remove from heat.
Remove bay leaf from soup. Using an immersion blender, blend until smooth. Add reduced cider, and any additional water desired.
Serves 6.

  • I have a very similar version of this recipe --- use garlic along with the onion, and there is absolutely no need for the sugar as this soup has plenty of sweetness from teh apple and teh cider. - 9/20/10
