-1 butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and cut into 1 inch chunks
-2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 inch chunks
-1 Tbsp olive oil
-1 medium onion
-4 cans chicken broth (8 cups)
-1.5 tsp sea salt
-.5 tsp black pepper
-1 tart apple, sliced and peeled (I used a pink lady)
-3 Tbsp raw honey
-1 tsp cinnamon
-1/4 tsp nutmeg
-1/8 tsp clove

In a large pot, sautée the onion and oil until onion is translucent. Add chicken broth, sweet potato, squash, salt and pepper and bring to boil. Boil for 15 minutes until tender.

Then you need to add the apple and purée everything. I did this by filling up my blender half way full (I used a 1 cup measuring cup to scoop everything from the pot to the blender) and blend without the center part of the lid on (so the heat can escape), and repeating 3-4 times until all pieces were blended really well. Put everything back in pot and add honey, nutmeg, cinnamon, and clove. Allow to simmer on low heat until you have the consistency you like. This makes a TON of soup! We will have leftovers all week and it turned out so much better than I was expecting. I wish everyone seeing this could have a little taste right now. So delicious!
