In answer to Barbara in Maryland’s question in the Oct 27th newsletter regarding squash soup – here is the recipe I use. It doesn’t have cream or cream cheese in it and it’s delish.

Butternut Squash Soup Recipe

2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 cups onions (3 large)
2 large butternut squash
4 sweet apples, such as McIntosh
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 cups water
2 cups apple juice

In a large stockpot over medium heat, cook butter, oil and onions until the onions are tender, stirring occasionally. Peel the squash, cut in half, remove the seeds and cut the squash into chunks. Peel, quarter, core the apples and cut into chunks. Add the squash, apples, salt, pepper, and water to the pot. Bring to a boil, cover, and cook over low heat for 30 to 40 minutes, until the squash and apples are soft. Process the soup using a stick blender or puree with a food processor fitted with a steel blade. Pour the soup back into the pot. Add the apple juice and enough water to make the soup the consistency you like; it should be slightly sweet and quite thick.

For Levista in Ne. Buy a whole chicken and season it with your choice of seasonings. I used Mrs. Dash. Place four or five crumpled balls of foil in crockpot to hold chicken. Put lid on and cook on low for six hours. My chicken was frozen and that's how long I cooked it. Fell off the bone and was delicious.

Robbie's Crockpot Rotisserie Chicken Recipes
This is for Billye F in LaVista, NE , who requested this recipe in the 10/27 newsletter. There are many versions of this recipe, as you can use various rubs and spices on the chicken, depending on your preference. Not all recipes suggest putting the chicken on foil wrapped potatoes instead of using balls of foil. Make sure the chicken you buy will fit in your crockpot or slow cooker. I don't feel that this truly replicates a rotisserie chicken, but it is a great and tasty way to prepare a whole chicken, which are often on sale in our area. I have never tried cooking it on low. I am sure you could do it, but think it would be less like the rotisserie chicken you find at the store.

Crock Pot Rotisserie Chicken Recipe

1 roasting chicken (choose one that will fit into your crock pot comfortably, and serve your size family)
Lawry's Seasoned Salt or your favorite no salt seasoning or rub
4 - 5 balls of aluminum foil or foil wrapped potatoes

Spray. Crumple up 4-5 foil pieces into balls, or wrap potatoes in foil and place at bottom of crock pot. This will keep the chicken from sitting in it's juices and will make it roast not boil. Plus, if you do it w/ potatoes, you just have to throw together a salad and you're done. Rinse chicken and pat dry w/ paper towels. Sprinkle all over generously w/ seasoned salt.

Place on top of foil balls in crock pot or on the foil covered potatoes breast side down. Do not add water. Cover and cook on HIGH (very important), for 4 - 5 hours or until chicken is done.

Crock Pot Rotisserie Chicken#2 Recipe

1 roasting chicken (choose one that will fit into your crock pot comfortably, and serve your size family)
3 teaspoons kosher salt (less if you like, this amount approximates the saltiness of the store bought kind)
1 teaspoon smoked paprika (you can use regular, I like the smoked flavor)
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
1/2 teaspoon black pepper (optional)
4 whole garlic cloves (optional)
1 yellow onion, quartered (optional)

Spray the inside of your crockpot with nonstick spray. Crumple up 4-5 foil pieces into balls, or wrap potatoes in foil and place at bottom of crock pot. This will keep the chicken from sitting in it's juices and will make it roast not boil. Plus, if you do it w/ potatoes, you just have to throw together a salad and you're done. Rinse chicken and pat dry w/ paper towels.

Combine all dry ingredients. Rub the dry ingredients all over the chicken, inside and out, and place in crockpot, breast side down. If desired, place onion and garlic inside chicken cavity or you can chop all or part of the garlic and place under the skin. DO NOT ADD ANY WATER. Cook 4-5 hours on high.

More Info on Dehydrating Fruits
Here is more information on dehydrating various fruits.
Robbie IN

Peaches
Firm peaches are easier to process and will dry faster than soft peaches. However, peaches that are very firm may lack sweetness because they are not ripe. Look for peaches that have good color and a little give when you squeeze them. If desired, remove the skin by dipping the peaches in boiling water for 30 – 60 seconds. Remove peaches with a slotted spoon and then dip in cold water. The skins will come right off.

Cut the peaches in half or quarters and remove the pits and the fibrous red parts around the pits. Then slice the halves or quarters crosswise into ? inch thick pieces. It’s easier to remove the pits of clingstone peaches if you cut the peaches into quarters since the pits adhere to the flesh of the fruit. The pits of freestone peaches pop out easily.

Dehydrate until pliable (8 – 12 hours


Strawberries
Wash strawberries and pat dry with paper towels. Cut off the leafy crown and slice strawberries crosswise into ? inch to ¼ inch thick pieces.

If you want to sweeten the strawberries, sprinkle with sugar after you place the slices on the trays. Sweetening the strawberries in a bowl first draws out juices and makes them messier to work with.

Dehydrate until leathery or crispy (8 – 12 hours).


Mangos
Cut the skin off the fruit and cut the flesh off the pit in the center section as best you can into ? inch thick pieces. Lay the two outer sections flat-side down and cut in half lengthwise and then slice the quarters crosswise into ? inch thick pieces.

Spread in a single layer on the dehydrator tray and dehydrate until pliable (8 – 12 hours). Blueberries They take a long time to dry and are only fair for snacking on. They are pretty good in oatmeal or make a nice topping for dried angel food cake when rehydrated and warmed.

Wash blueberries and remove the stems. Break the skins before drying. Place blueberries in a colander and dip in boiling water for 30 seconds and then in cold water to check (break) the skins.

Blueberries will dry faster and turn out crispier if you skip the dip and cut the berries in half before drying. Place the berries in a single layer on the dehydrator tray with the skin side down.

Dehydrate until leathery (12 – 20 hours).
