  1. Place halved butternut squash on sheet pans, roast in a preheated 400°F oven for 30-45 minutes until the flesh is fully cooked (soft and releases from the skin). Remove from the oven.
  2. Scrape cooked flesh discarding all skin, reserve 1 quart of roasted squash "meat".

  4. In a separate 1 gallon container, measure 1/2 gallon of hot water, blend in True Foundations™ Chicken and Roasted Vegetable Base. Blend thoroughly until base is fully dissolved.
  5. Add the blended chicken and vegetable stock to the onions. Add apples, sage leaves, and roasted butternut squash flesh.
  6. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to simmer and cook 30-45 minutes until flavors are melded.
  7. Add cream, blend thoroughly.
  8. Carefully puree in small batches in a blender.
  9. Add the fresh ground pepper to your taste.
