Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat and simmer until tender; about 10-15 minutes.

While the squash is cooking, sautée the chopped onion and garlic in the butter until the onion is tender and beginning to brown or caramelize.Butternut Squash Soup 3Grate nutmeg if using fresh- which makes the soup SCRUMPTOUS!Butternut Squash Soup 4



Mix together the squash and onion mixture, along with approximately ½ cup evaporated milk, in a blender or food processor (a portion at a time) and puree.

Hold a towel over the top, tightly, to prevent the hot soup from spilling out the top and burning you.Butternut Squash Soup 4Pour the pureed squash mixture back into the pan.

Add the rest of the evaporated milk, milk, spices and sugar, and warm through – but do not bring to a boil! 

Thin with additional milk if you want to desired consistency.
