Butternut Squash and Apple Soup

Apples add a bit of tang to this autumn soup.

Butternut squash and apple soup

If you have apples, squash and maple syrup available locally, you’re ready to make this tasty, satisfying soup. It freezes well, so feel free to double the recipe and freeze some for a cold winter’s night.


  • 2½ pounds butternut squash, peeled and diced 
  • 3 to 4 cooking apples
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 stick cinnamon
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 2 T. maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp. ginger

Peel and dice squash; peel and quarter apples. In a heavy pot, combine squash, apples, chicken broth and cinnamon stick; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer 20-30 minutes, until tender. Remove cinnamon stick. Process in blender until smooth. Return mixture to pot; stir in milk, butter, syrup and spices. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until well heated. Garnish with thin apple slices and ground nutmeg.

Serves 6.

My husband and I are also excited to try this one, even though the first squash soup recipe we ever tried has left me a skeptic. I think the maple syrup and the apples will make it!
