BUTTERNUT SQUASH SOUP

Butternut squash soup is one of my favorite soups of the season. It's easy to make and it tastes delicious.

2 Medium Size butternut squash (cut lengthwise and seeded)
1 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp butter
2 Stalks of celery
1 medium size onion, chopped
2 ripe Anjou or Bartlett pears (or apples) diced
1 Tsp. ground cumin 
1/2 Tsp. ground cloves
1/2 Tsp.  dried crushed rosemary leaves
3 Cups of chicken broth
2 Cups of water

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a tray with foil. Rub 1 tbsp oil on the squash and place on foil face down in lined tray. Roast for 45-50 minutes or until very tender. Cool until easy to handle and scoop squash from  skins and place in a large bowl. Discard skins.  Sautee onions and celeryin a pot  for 10 minutes, stir in spices,  add  diced pears, squash, broth and water. Heat to boiling then reduce heat to simmer for 15-20 minutes. Using hand held infuser blend squash mixture  until pureed.   Enjoy.

There is nothing to beat butternut soup, your recipe is similar to mine but I also use orange zest which I think gives it a great flavour. See my recipe at http://www.recipe.nidi.org.uk/Butternut_Soup.htm
I will try your recipe next lot I make to see what the difference in flavour is. Hope all is well with you, Take care Diane
