Acorn Squash Soup

Recently, we had some friends over, so I decided to make soup as the first course--but not just any soup, Acorn Squash! This dish isn't a quickie, but well worth it!

Ingredients: 

3 large acorn squash
1/4 cup butter
1 large white onion, chopped
1 shallot, chopped
6 cups chicken broth
1 bottle of dry white wine
zest of 1 lime
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup whipping cream

Step 1: 

Preheat oven to 375. Cut the squash in half and use a spoon to remove seeds.

Step 2: 

Place the squash cut side down in a shallow baking dish or roasting pan.

Step 3: 

Bake for 45 minutes and let rest. While the squash is resting, melt butter in a Dutch oven over medium heat.

Step 4: 

Add onion and cook until tender.

Step 5: 

Add chicken broth.

Step 6: 

Add wine.

Step 7: 

Scoop the pulp out of the squash and add to the pot.

Step 8: 

Now add lime juice and zest.

Step 9: 

Bring to a boil and then simmer for 10 minutes. Turn off the heat and let rest to cool. Pour the mixture into a blender.

Step 10: 

Process until smooth and repeat the procedure with the remaining mixture. Return both portions to the Dutch oven.

Step 11: 

Stir in the whipping cream.

Step 12: 

Cook over low heat, stirring constantly. Serve and enjoy.

Xinhai is a leader in providing mineral recovery solutions to the mining industries. Xinhai has designed a high
efficiency thickener with simplicity of concept and with specific benefits for today’s operators. Xinhai Thickeners
provide a low operating cost answer to recovering immediately re-usable process water; additionally, they reduce
the need for settling ponds minimizing environmental and water consumption concerns.
High efficiency Thickeners make use of flocculant to help agglomerate very fine particles into larger particles
that can settle much faster than the fine particles themselves. All solids settle to the bottom of thickeners
and clean water rises to the top so the solids settling rate must always be greater than the clean water rise rate.
Care must be taken when sizing Thickeners to avoid selecting a unit that will be too small. If the clean water rise rate is too high,
more flocculant must be added to the solids to overcome upward rising velocity. crusher
