I’ve been craving winter squashes lately. My mom gave me a huge bag of dried cranberries, and I thought they would go perfect in a creamy squash soup. I didn’t have any carrots, but next time I make this, I plan to add either shredded carrots as a garnish, or diced carrots to the soup with the apples. Orange juice would made a wonderful substitute for the apple juice.
Really gets you energized in the morning. Only use bee products that are local to your area, otherwise stick to other sweeteners like dates. A pear might also go really nice in place of the bee products. My local coops discount fruit bins have been overflowing with perfectly ripe mangos and pineapples.
I always enjoy winter when persimmons begin to show up at local stores and usually eat them up as is. Now there are more ways to enjoy these delights. Thanks to Tommie for sharing this recipe and photo.
