Butternut Squash and Apple Soup with Cider Cream

A wonderful soup, combining sweet and tart together. Quite heavenly.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Melt butter in a large pan over medium-high heat.
  2. Add the squash which should be peeled, seeded and chopped into 1/2" cubes, chopped white and green part of the leeks, chopped carrots and chopped celery. Sauté, stirring, 10-12 minutes.
  3. Add 2 of chopped the apples, (the other whole apple you will use later), thyme and sage. Add broth and 1 cup cider. Bring to simmer; cover. On low, cook until vegetables and apples are tender, stirring, 30 minutes. Remove from heat; cool.
  4. Boil remaining 1/2 cup cider in a small pan until reduced to 1/4 cup, 5 minutes. Cool. Place sour cream in a small bowl then whisk in reduced cider.
  5. Puree soup, in batches, in blender. Return to pot; season with salt if needed.
  6. Halve and core remaining apple; slice. Serve soup with cider cream. Garnish with bacon and apple.

How big is a serving? The recipe says it makes 6 servings, but I ended up with almost a gallon, way more than what 6 people could eat... Other than that, it tastes great. I'd skip the cider cream though, makes it a little too tart.

Easy to make, and truly delicious! The best bites were the ones with the bacon. The sweet and salty make a great combo. I was worried that it would not be filling enough as a stand alone meal, but I was wrong! After one bowl I was stuffed. As a bonus we had a ton of leftovers, so I get to enjoy again for lunch. :-)
