  4. Finish butchering the %&$#@! squash.
  5. Add the rest of the squash and stir in syrup and honey. If getting too thick, you can add a little more water. Simmer until squash is soft.
  6. Strain soup and mash vegetables, apples, etc. with a potato masher, or put through a potato ricer, or blend with a stick blender.
  7. Return vegetable mixture to the hot broth and stir to blend.
  8. Add a little of the hot soup to the cream in a measuring cup. Then slowly add cream mixture to the hot soup stirring constantly.
  9. Correct the seasoning, adding salt and white pepper if necessary. Ladle into bowls and garnish with a dash of ground nutmeg.
