This is one of my favorite soups, so we started growing butternut squash in our garden a couple of years ago. That year, we harvested so many that the last soup I made with them was into summer. This year we didn’t get quite so many (some were sacrificed to animals, but we also just didn’t plant as many). So, this soup may or may not be our homegrown squash, but the color is still rich. And the taste…. Mmmmmm.
