Healthy Butternut Squash & Apple Soup
It’s soup season and I have to say my family and I love soup! Especially on cold snow days. I made this butternut squash and apple soup last year and it was a huge hit. I decided to make it again. This time we not only used butternut squash from our garden but we also had delicious apples from our apple trees on the property!
I am so in love with the opportunity to have some land so we can have our garden, orchard and I can’t forget my wonderful chickens and ducks.
It’s difficult to think anything but pleasant thoughts while eating homegrown vegetables!
Our goal as a family is to become more and more self-reliant and providing our family healthy and clean food.
Butternut Squash is high in potassium, magnesium, fiber, and antioxidants to name a few.
