Peel 1 Butternut squash.
It looks like this inside when cut open. One end is solid and the other is hollow except for seeds and fibers.
Peel, core and dice 4 red or golden apples. The easiest way to do this is with this Apple Peeler/Corer/Slicer. Place apple level into the prongs and turn handle. It peels, slices and cores all while you turn the handle. It makes speedy work of this job. Then just make four cuts through the finished apple to make diced apples.
Add 2 teaspoons salt, 1 1/2 t. ground cumin, 1/2 t. ground coriander, 1/2 t. ground ginger, 1/4 t. cayenne pepper and 1/4 t. ground pepper. Next add 2 cups canned chicken stoock and enough water to cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce to simmer, and cook until vegetables are very soft, about 30 minutes.
water if necessary, although I like mine thick. Serve hot with garnish of your choice.
