Butternut Squash Soup

  • 1 medium butternut squash, peeled, seeded and chopped
  • 2 tart green apples, peeled, cored and chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1/4 tsp marjoram
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 2 slices stale bread
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream

In a large pot over medium high heat, simmer all ingredients except the cream, covered for 45 minutes.  Puree in a blender or food processor, 2 cups at a time.  Return puree to pot.  Stir in cream and heat to just below boiling.

You can make ahead and freeze without adding cream.
