October is a great time to find fresh squash. You will find an abundance of squash, from acorn squash, butternut squash, and zucchini to pumpkins, spaghetti squash, and hybrid varieties like honey bear. Squash is one of those foods that can be great cooked in many different ways. They can be baked, turned into pie filling, roasted, steamed, and cubed or pureed for soup. Before your local farmers market closes for the winter, make a trip to pick up some squash so you can fix this sumptuous soup for your friends and family.
