Serves 4 to 6

2 tbsp. sunflower oil

1 wild onion chopped or ¼ cup
chopped shallot

2 lbs. winter squash, seeded,
peeled, and cut into
1-inch cubes

1 tart apple, cored
and chopped

1 cup cider

3 cups corn stock or vegetable stock

1 tbsp. maple syrup or more to taste

Salt to taste

Sumac to taste

Cranberry sauce or chopped

Fresh cranberries for garnish

Heat the oil in a deep, heavy saucepan over medium heat and sauté the onion, squash, and apple until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the cider and stock, increase the heat, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until the squash is very tender, about 20 minutes. With an immersion blender or working in batches with a blender, purée the soup and return to the pot to warm. Season to taste with maple syrup, salt, and sumac. Serve with a dollop of cranberry.
