Butternut Squash Soup

2 cups onion, finely chopped
3 lbs. butternut squash, peeled and cubed
4 cups chicken broth
1 1/2 cup applesauce
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground white pepper
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp ground curry powder
1/4 tsp ground ground coriander
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 TBS butter

Cook the onions in a little oil in a skillet until transparent, then put them in the Crock Pot. Add all but the sugar and butter. Cover and cook on Low for 4-6 hours. Ladle small batches into a food processor or blender and puree until smooth. Add butter and sugar and stir until dissolved. Top with a little sour cream if desired.
NOTE: This is a butternut squash. To roast it you cut it vertically and scoop out the seeds, then place it cut side down in a shallow baking dish with a little water and cover it with aluminum foil. Bake at 400 for 45 minutes or until it's mushy to the touch (like you test a baked potato). Scoop out squash and throw away skin.
