Butternut Squash Apple Soup

written by Julie Cohn
Have you ever tried butternut squash soup before?  Rich and creamy, with a touch of zest from the ginger and a touch of sweet from the apples, this butternut squash soup is the ultimate comfort food.  There is nothing more better on a chilly night than a nice bowl of hot soup with a loaf of crusty bread and a salad.   This recipe for Butternut Squash Apple Soup is easy to make and will become a family favorite in your house, just as it is in my house.

 

{This recipe is sponsored by REVEREWARE® but the recipe and opinions are 100% my own.}

 

REVERE® Copper Confidence Core™ Cookware

I was recently sent a set of the REVERE® Copper Confidence Core™ cookware to try and knew the stockpot would be perfect to make my butternut squash apple soup in.  REVERE® and I have a long history together, so I was very excited to try out the new set.  Both my grandmother and mother owned and cherished REVERE® cookware.  When I moved into my first apartment, my mom passed her set of REVERE® cookware down to me.  I used (and cherished) those pots for 15 years, until I lovingly passed them onto a friend.

For over 130 years, REVERE® cookware has maintained a reputation for making durable, long-lasting pots and pans, and with the new Copper Confidence Core™ cookware line, REVERE® is better than ever.  The cookware is classic stainless steel which does not react to food and resists discoloration.  The Copper Confidence Core™ disc on the bottom of the pans allows for quicker (up to 50% faster) and more even heating.

Butternut Squash Apple Soup

  • 2 Large Butternut Squash
  • Approximately 1 Tbsp. Melted Butter
  • 2 Tbsp. Butter
  • 1 Onion, Peeled (I prefer sweet onions such as Vidalia or Walla Walla)
  • 2 Apples, Peeled and Cored
  • 2 tsp. Cinnamon (Ground)
  • 2 tsp. Ginger (Fresh grated is preferred)
  • 1/8 tsp. Clove (Ground)
  • 1/8 tsp. Curry Powder
  • 1 tsp. Sage (Ground)
  • 5 c. Beef Stock
  • 1 c. Apple Cider or Juice
  • 2 tsp. Salt
  • 1/2 tsp. Ground Pepper
  • 1/2 c. Heavy Cream
  • Danish Blue Cheese crumbles (Optional)
  • Crumbled Cooked Sausage (Optional)

My recipe could almost be considered one-pot, because other than roasting the butternut squash in the oven, everything else is made in one big stockpot, my new Revere® 6.5 quart stockpot.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Wash and dry the whole butternut squash.  Cut the green (narrow) end of the squash off, and then cut the squash in half, lengthwise.  Scoop out the seeds from inside the bulb of the squash.  Put melted butter in one hand and wipe over the squash, inside and out.  Place face down (skin side out) on a foil-lined baking sheet, cover with a small piece of foil, and place in the oven for 25-30 minutes, until soft.  Remove the foil and roast an additional 5-7 minutes.  Pierce the squash with a fork to make certain it is soft inside. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool for about 10 minutes.  When squash is cool enough to handle, slowly peel the outside skin off the squash and cut the squash into small bite-size pieces.

Place the butter in a large stock pot and turn stove to medium.  Finely chop the onion and apple, add to the butter, and saute for about 5-7 minutes until soft.  Add cinnamon, ginger, clove, curry, and sage.  Add the beef stock and apple juice and turn the stove up to medium high.  Add the butternut squash and salt to the broth and heat to boiling.  Reduce heat and continue to simmer for 30 minutes. Turn the stove off and allow the soup to cool for about five minutes, then use either a hand blender, food processor, or blender, puree the soup.  Return to the stock pot and reheat for about five minutes, then swirl in the heavy cream.  Ladle the bisque into bowls and garnish with blue cheese crumbles.  Blue cheese?  Yes, blue cheese.   I am not kidding, it is delightful with the blue cheese! If you have meat eaters in your family, you can also add some crumbled cooked sweet sausage. We prefer it without meat.  Recipes serves 4-6.

(Note:  Most squash soup recipes use chicken stock but I truly believe beef broth gives the soup so much more flavor.  Use whichever stock you prefer for your family.)

I love that the the handles interlock, allowing pans to neatly stack and eliminates scratches and that copper is used at the bottom of the pans since it makes them more heat conductive. 🙂
