Clear five stars - this soup got rave reviews! Not having frozen apple juice concentrate I used one more apple which turned out just great. Also I didn't peel the squash but first steemed it with peel and then followed the recipe with the slightly steamed squash. Will definitely make this again! Thanks for posting.
