  • Add 2 cups of water. Bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and cook over low heat 40-45 minutes or until apples and squash are soft.
  • Purée mixture in blender or food processor. Return to stock pot. Add apple cider, or apple juice, and water until desired consistency is obtained. Soup should be somewhat thick with a sweet flavor. Can be served hot or cold. Optional: garnish with bacon bits and thyme.
