Squash Apple Soup

Out of all the fall produce, squash is my most favorite.  Probably why I have so many squash recipes on the blog.  This Squash Apple Soup is sure to please.  I used kabocha squash in my recipe.  In my opinion, it’s the sweetest and most buttery squash out there.  Try this recipe that calls for it too.
