    Butternut Soup

    Warm spicy butternut soup for those rainy days…. I make this soup with my homemade bread on days when the sun is gone and the rain monkey has brought the clouds to play with. Each time I make the recipe there is a new flavour as each butternut is different coming from different parts of the world. This year Sinead and I planted our own butternut plants – they are currently in the garden with beautiful butternuts waiting for a few more sunny days and then we can harvest them. We are looking forward to tasting our homegrown butternuts. Ingredients
