Autumn Soup

      You really don't need a recipe to make soup, especially one this simple. Just use what is fresh and cook it gently. Serve it with a high quality bread like this Tuscan pane, and you will be happy and nourished.

     Apple and Butternut Squash Soup with Toasted Walnuts

      Cut, peel, and boil fresh squash til soft. Drain. In stock pot saute some garlic and onion and herbs of choice in olive oil. Return squash to pot and mash with some butter til very well blended. Mash in apple sauce. Add some white wine and / or broth and maybe a bit of cream until you reach the consistency you desire. Garnish with warm walnuts and serve with buttered toast for dipping. Tell little kids this is called Squashed Soup and let them help with the squashing process.
