Ingredients
  • 4 tbsps Butter
  • 1 Large Onion
  • 2 Butternut Squash, peeled, seeded & cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 Golden Delicious apples, peeled & cored
  • 2 Quarts chicken stock or water
  • 1 Bay Leaf
  • 1 Spring Thyme
  • 2 tbsps Honey
  • 1/2 tsp Ground pepper
  • 1/2 tsp or to taste, Kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup Grated Cheddar, Asiago or Fontina cheese (optional)
  • 2 cups Heavy cream (optional)
Directions

Melt the butter in a large pot. Add the onions and sauté until translucent; this sweetens the onion. Add the squash and the apple and sauté for a few more minutes. Cover with the stock and add bay leaf, thyme, and honey. Salt lightly, bring to a boil, and simmer until squash is very soft.

Remove bay leaf and thyme. Puree the soup in a food processor or run it through the food mill.

Return the soup to the pot. Add the pepper and, if desired, the cheese and heavy cream. Stir over a low flame until the cheese is melted and the soup is warm. Serve immediately with our Russian River Valley Reserve Chardonnay.

ALTERNATE PAIRING:
Omit the heavy cream and pair with Russian River Valley Pinot Gris.
