I just adopted this recipe. We have some extra butternut and acorn squash and pie pumpkin the the freezer and my husband decided to make squash soup with it. I'm hoping the blend of squash and pumpkin will work. Also plan to add the secret ingredient, nutmeg. I will post results.
We made this soup and it was pretty good. We left out the cinnamon and mace and added nutmeg. We would make it again.
