Crème de courge butternut, orange et petit-lait

Cream of butternut squash, orange and whey

It's squash season, what a delight!
It is possible to cook them in 1000 and one ways, but when you are a home cheese maker, you always have a little (or a lot!) of whey on hand to cook.
Let's take advantage of this fall seasonal vegetable to comfort ourselves with a cream that will warm our hearts and bellies!
