Squash soup

As expected, there was plenty of squash in the garden at Backus Mills. I boiled some up for our saturday potluck but the wood was damp, the fire wasn't overly hot, and the squash wasn't ready in time for dinner. So, I drained it and brought it home and today I'm making squash soup. One thing I didn't think about: when squash is boiled it loses most of it's colour in the water. So now that I've added stock and am boiling it a second time, it's looking sort of brown and sad. Oh well, it still tastes delicious!! Pictures to follow, don't laugh at my ugly soup.
