Spiced Apple and Butternut Squash Soup-er
November 2, 2016
Butternut squash is so versatile and easy to adapt to recipes, substitute for sweet potatoes or even pumpkin. And it is a hardy squash that lasts a long time in the pantry. They are fairly easy to grow, however, do require a lot of space.
Funny story – a few years ago in spring we composted all our flower beds with our homemade compost. Summer arrives and so do all kinds of gourds, butternut squash, pumpkins, you name it. All our flower beds were full of random squash. Neighbors commented on the flourishing squash garden in our front yard. This was not intentional by any means! We were new at composting and what we found out is that our compost had not “cooked enough” to kill all the germinating seeds and so they grew more plants. Surprise!
