I am not really one to foodblog, but this is hands down my new favorite soup to make.
Let me tell you about it.
To start, you get:
onion, carrots, apples, celery, butternut squash, and potatos
you peel that squash, it sucks but you have to do it.
and those carrots
then you get ready for a bunch of chopping. you might want to crack a beer before you handle the pork, so now's the time. get to work!
omg cut it all up into nice bite size pieces, for serious.
oh ya, even the pork
take some butter in a pan, melt it, then put that pork in there.
BROWN IT! now is also the idea time to add some salt and pepper.
you should take 3 cups of chicken broth and put it in your crockpot on high. also mince a couple cloves of garlic and put it in there. also, maybe some rosemary and a bay leaf. and a dog? your call there.
i said BROWN IT!
then pour it into the crockpot juice, all hot and sizzly
dump all the rest of that stuff you took forever to chop up in there.
then crockpot it for an eternity! take this stuff and put it in your compost. or don't! i don't care what you do.
this doesn't make it look very appetizing, but i swear it is.
it will take you forever to eat the whole crockpot full by yourself, so maybe you should freeze some or give some away. either way, it is delicious and you will love yourself for making it
