This was very time consuming. I roasted the butternut squash on a pan with 1/4 c. water while I was doing the other preparations & just scooped it out when it was done & I was ready for it. It did have a very intense flavor, but somehow with all the seasonings, I didn't taste much squash. Actually I tasted more celery than squash. I also didn't puree it as my kiddos don't care for that texture. I opted to use my electric mixer to beat the soup on med-low while still in the pot just before serving. This way I could control the consistency & didn't have to juggle "batches" to and from my blender. All in all, it was a good soup, but a bit overwhelming if you (as I did) plan it as the main course. I will make it again, only next time I plan on cutting back the curry (I love it, but it drown out the other flavors... I couldn't taste the apple at all.), adding twice the bacon & a tiny bit of liquid smoke. I think that would be the perfect variation to make it more of a rounded hearty meal in itself.
