Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    1 white or yellow onion, chopped
    1 T. olive oil
    4 cups cubed butternut squash, or 1 small
    2 persimmons
    1 orange, zest and juice
    1/4 c. sour cream

Directions

In a large pot over medium heat, saute onions until translucent.

Add to the pot the squash, persimmons, a heavy pinch or two of salt, and enough water to come up a couple of inches above the squash. Cook at a rolling boil.

When squash is soft pour the contents, including the liquid, into a blender. Add to the blender the zest, orange juice, a few grinds of pepper and sour cream (usually yogurt in lieu of the sour cream).

Puree, pulsing to start and venting a little steam at a time, until smooth. Taste and adjust seasoning as necessary.

Serving Size: makes 6, 1-cup portions
