QUICK AND EASY BUTTERNUT SQUASH SOUP

We generally harvest our butternut squashes in September and then leave them out in the sun for several days to ripen. It is important to treat them with care so that they don’t bruise and leave about 10cm of stalk on each one so that they don’t go off. We then store them upright in crates with a single layer in each one. They will happily keep for 5 or 6 months like that but you shoUld check them every so often just to be on the safe side. If you find that any of the stalks have fallen off, it is a good idea to peel and process them. Bags of grated squash or pieces can be frozen and later used in soups, stews or for bhajis or fritters.
