Roasted Butternut Squash Soup with Apple and Anis Root


I mostly followed this recipe ... with the following exceptions ...


I don't believe in cutting these kinds of squashes and pumpkins in half before roasting.   Why, why, why ... that is a lot of work ... their skins are hard to cut.   I just throw them in the oven right out of the field.  This one i got from the farmstand plots at the sustainable renton community farm.

...................................................................................................................................................
i used some Sage leaves from Russell farm ... one of the crops that actually came in this year.

this is how it looked in the pot the first day.   Denise said it was bland, too thick, and didn't have all the whole chunks of veggies that i usually include.

So i went and got an anis root from Fred Meyer and some apples and sauted those up with some onions and processed them in my vitamix untill very thine adding some chicken stock. 

I added that to the pot with some of the apple chunks and anis root chunks which i steamed over water.

Incidentally apple, anis root, and onions alone might make quite a interesting soup.  I tasted it before i put it in the pot ... and oh my, oh my
.....................................................................................................................................................


... the result was

delicious

There are a couple more days in the freezer under #18902
