Original recipe yields 6 servings

Directions

  1. Combine the cubed squash, milk and chicken broth in a saucepan. Season with salt, pepper, curry powder, celery salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, and simmer for about 30 minutes, until squash is tender, stirring frequently to prevent the milk from scorching.
  2. Add 1/2 the shrimp, and 1/2 the pears to the soup, and bring to a boil. Cook for 5 minutes, or until shrimp is opaque. Transfer the soup to a blender or food processor, and blend until smooth. Return to the saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium-low heat.
  3. Add the remaining shrimp and remaining pears to the soup, and simmer for another 5 minutes, or until shrimp is opaque. Stir in sherry wine, and remove from heat. Ladle into bowls, and garnish with a light sprinkle of cinnamon or nutmeg.

This is a keeper! I used the suggestion about carmelizing the onions, using only 1 T. butter, but found it too sweet. Made it again leaving out only the sugar--much better, and definitely sweet enough. I also blended all of the pear (too much of a 'burst' of sweetness when biting into the little chunks of pear). A great recipe!

I cut the servings down to 4 & roasted my squash (cut in half, scrape out seeds, place cut side down in inch of water, bake @350 for about 45 minutes... maybe an hour) & then scooped out the inside & added it to the milk & broth (cutting down the cooking time, naturally). I pureed all of the pears (didn't have quite as much as recipe called for because I used some in pear-tinis ;o) ) I did make the carmelized onions (they had a lot to the soup!) but I only used a couple tbp of butter, half an onion & sprinkled them w/ salt instead of sugar. The only sherry I had was a cream sherry but it worked. I started the meal off w/ Pear-tinis (even hubby liked those), served this soup w/ a salad (w/ pear/honey vinaigrette), garlic toast & finished it off w/ Pears w/ Raspberry Sauce. Thansk for a very enjoyable recipe namaste2uom!
