Hearty Butternut Soup

From Republican Valley Produce

<p>Hearty Butternut Soup</p> <p>Thank you to Linda for this post!</p> <p>With a few hundred pounds of squash in our basement, we have tried many variations of butternut soup, many of which got poured down the drain. The taste just wasn&#8217;t there or the texture was icky, to use the girls&#8217; words. Today, I finally found a variation we all liked.</p>
