Nothing beats a bowl of hot soup on a chilly autumn day, and what better way than to fix it FRESH?

Homemade, For Goodness Sake!

I recently had “Autumn Soup” at a local restaurant. It boasts of a rich blend of butternut squash and pumpkin with honey, apple juice, cinnamon and a hint of curry. It was creamy, rich, sweet, and delicious.

Experiment or Testing?

I decided to try my own version at home with some of my freshly pureed pumpkin. I tend to experiment, sometimes to my own hurt. So I also switched some other ingredients (like sugar for honey) and added more pumpkin spices. My "sprinkle" of curry was a bit overzealous and too pungent, so I added garlic salt. Big mistake. The soup now lacked the sweetness. So much for my experiments.

Candy, I agree that there's nothing like a bowl of soup on a blustery cold Fall/Winter day. I'm more prone to a chili, stew, or bean soup. I have made squash soup and will be making more because I grew 75 squash this summer. It's just a little more than I really wanted. Squash is not a vegetable that is a good give away demand. However, I have requests that spaghetti squash would be one that people seem to want. I like to grow things to give away so I listen to what my friends and neighbors like to eat and grow that. I like to experiment in the kitchen as well. Have a great day in the kitchen experimenting with soup. Nebraska Dave GRIT blogger
