admin's picture
  Extra virgin olive oil 2 Tablespoon
  Onion 1 Medium, halved and thinly sliced
  Apple cider 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Butternut squash 1 3⁄4 Pound, peeled, seeded and cut into 1-inch dice
  Chicken stock/Low-sodium broth 4 1⁄2 Cup (72 tbs)
  Heavy cream 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Salt To Taste
  Freshly ground pepper To Taste
  Unsalted butter 2 Tablespoon
  Mcintosh apple 1 , cut into 1/2 inch dice
  Shredded smoked cheddar cheese 2 Ounce (1/3 Cup)
  Chives/Thinly sliced sage leaves 4 (1-Inch Pieces, For Garnish)

1. In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil. Add the onion and cook over moderately high heat, stirring occasionally, until golden, about 8 minutes. Add the apple cider and cook until syrupy, about 3 minutes. Add the butternut squash and chicken stock and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer until the squash is very tender, about 40 minutes.
2. In a blender, puree the soup in batches. Return the soup to the saucepan and stir in the cream. Season with salt and pepper and keep warm.
3. Heat a medium skillet. Add the butter and diced apple and cook over high heat until the apple is tender and golden around the edges, about 2 minutes. Remove the skillet from the heat. Season lightly with salt and pepper.
4. Ladle the soup into warmed bowls, garnish with the Cheddar, sauteed apples and chives and serve
