I made this last night with my daughter (who wants to be a chef). The apples overpowered the flavor of the squash. I used apple juice made from my juicer so maybe that was the reason for the pronounced apple flavor. I added a bit of cream which I had on hand instead of yogurt and that helped with the flavor a bit. Not a bad soup but I'll stick with my family recipe.
