butternut squash soupFor those that are new to Butternut Squash it is a type of winter squash. It has a sweet, nutty taste similar to that of a pumpkin. It has yellow skin and orange fleshy pulp. When ripe, it turns increasingly deep orange, and becomes sweeter and richer. It grows on a vine.

If you have chicken stock around then all you have to is put all these ingredients in the pot and let it simmer and then puree.  Could not be easier.  Make sure you use some tart apples for the soup.

Harvesting and Using Summer Squash

Summer squash is one of my favorite vegetables. I love the yellow summer squash in particular. They should be harvested while still tender, when they have a "glossy" appearance and are still small. You will most likely need to harvest daily once they start to appear.
