Butternut Squash Soup

Recommended Posts

Start the day off with a nice roast of a butternut squash.

A little butter and maple syrup in the hole and they are ready for the grill @425-450 F for an hour or so.

On the grill.

Done and what a wonderful aroma from the maple syrup and butter.

Now for the soup, sauteing some onions. Like my tasting spoon????

This spoon has two ends, one for scooping up a little soup and hold the other end to your mouth and the soup just runs to you for a taste.

Ready to serve. :)

Nice, but I really love that spoon!

Who's your friend swimming in the soup, MacKenzie?

And, I don't even want to know why you cut that squash like that - crazy!

That spoon is neat, a friend gave it to me. The little fish was given to me by another friend. That is the only way to cut that squash as far as I know. What would you have done?

I was referring to the wavy lines - that's not standard.

I wondered if that was what you meant, it just happens that I find the thin blade on that cutter works really well. I looks like this and the handle does get in the way but the blade is easy to push thru the tough squash.  image.png.9e446040d4912c47db4d6e5107138414.png

You have some very nice friends.  That spoon is fab!  Any idea where s(he) got it or what it is called?

I agree, she bought it a Nova Scotia historical sight where they make them. It is called a sipping spoon if I recall correctly but don't bank on that. I expect they are closed this time of year. It is probably a three hour drive from me.Maybe next summer I"ll make a visit.

That soup looks delicious. I’ve been wanting to make some butternut soup,even bought the squash but ended up cubing and then baking it. Cool spoon! Is that fish edible?

Hmmm.  I have a potter friend. Might see if she thinks making such a spoon would be an interesting project.  Race to see if I have success there before you make it to the source :-o
