Directions

  1. Heat butter in a heavy bottomed large skillet or pot over medium heat.
  2. Sauté onions first for 5 minutes then add the rest of the chopped fruit and veggies, sprinkling with 1 tsp of salt, sauté another 5-10 minutes.
  3. Add stock until veggies are just covered and let simmer until veggies are soft and easily forked.
  4. Blend with an upright blender or an immersion blender until velvety smooth. You will have to do in batches if using an upright blender.
  5. Return your blended soup to the same pot, or a new one if you used a skillet, and add honey, last teaspoon of salt, spices of choice, and citrus.
  6. Whisk in more stock until your soup is about the texture of heavy cream. Taste, and adjust seasoning to your liking.
  7. Whisk in 1/2 cup of heavy cream, serve. Garnish with Farmer’s Cheese and pickled blueberries, a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of spice!
