I don’t usually like squash. Someone gave me some home-grown acorn squash and I found this recipe to use them up. I like this! Use lots of nutmeg and any kind of squash (acorn, butternut, hubbard) you'd like. This freezes well. Add more broth for a thinner consistancy. Try adding some cooked wild rice. YUM!

First time making a squash soup. Found this recipe, and it's great! I only recommend putting some brown sugar in it to taste, makes it delicious!

Oh, I adore acorn squash and this soup was just the thing for a chilly fall day. It's thick and spiced just right. I added just about 1/4 cup fat free milk to thin it just a bit. This soup is good enough for a big holiday dinner or just your average lunch. Love it. Thanx!
