A small pie pumpkin can be substituted for butternut squash.
- 1 (1-pound) butternut squash
- 3 cooking apples (such as Rome or Golden Delicious), peeled, cored and coarsely chopped
- 3 (14 1/2-ounce) cans chicken broth
- 1 1/4 cups chopped onion
- 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
- 2 cups water
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1/2 cup whipping cream
Rinse outside of squash; microwave on high for 1 to 2 minutes. Cut squash in half lengthwise. Scoop out seeds; cut in half again crosswise. Combine squash, apples, chicken broth, onion, thyme, water and pepper in a large stockpot or Dutch oven. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, 45 minutes or until squash is tender. Remove squash with tongs and let cool enough to handle. Scoop cooked squash from rind; discard rind. Combine squash and 1 cup soup mixture in bowl of a food processor; cover and process until smooth. Process remaining soup mixture in batches. Combine blended soup and whipping cream in same stockpot. Cook over medium heat just until thoroughly heated. Makes about 8 cups. Note: Freeze in airtight containers for up to 3 months. Thaw in refrigerator overnight before reheating.
