I've made this recipe for about 15 years now. I discovered it by watching her show when I lived in Seattle. I use an oxo grip vegetable peeler to take the skin off of the butternut squash. I half it first (pushing down knife 2 hands with towel) scooping out seeds then vegetable peel off skin. It's funny, the first time I made this I had these orange soft chunks floating around in a broth. I use chicken broth........then the magic happened. I pureed the mixture as the final step. It's golden magic. The soup is like velvet, the ginger (use a rasp to grate) it's just lovely. I moved the Minnesota 11 years ago........and boy this does it every time. The only alteration was chicken broth, I suppose you can use water or vegetable broth...................YUM...........thank you Martha!....from your #1 fan...Peter in Minnesota!
