2 tablespoons butter
1 medium-size sweet onion, chopped
4 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
4 1/2 cups chicken broth
1 (15-oz.) can pumpkin
2 (12-oz.) packages frozen cooked pureed squash, thawed
1/4 cup half-and-half
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cider vinegar
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Freshly ground pepper to taste


1. Melt butter in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onion, and sauté 5 minutes or until tender. Add thyme; sauté 1 minute or until fragrant.

2. Stir in broth, pumpkin, and squash. Increase heat to medium-high; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, and simmer 6 minutes. Remove from heat, and let cool 10 minutes.

3. Process soup, in batches, in a food processor or blender until smooth. Return soup to Dutch oven. Stir in half-and-half and remaining ingredients. Cook, over low heat, stirring often, 3 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Serve immediately.

Note: We tested with Publix Cooked Squash. Be sure to use unsweetened squash puree for best results.
