I'm a big fan of the humble soup, but I have to confess that pumpkin soup is probably not my favourite. I went through a stage in my late twenties where I ate a truck load of pumpkin soup and it actually had a big effect on me. It took me quite a few years to start making it again, and in fact, I think this is the first time I've made it for almost a year.
Mind you, in my twenties I would not have made it with fresh organic pumpkin. However, times have changed........
........... and when I saw the beautiful pumpkins for sale at my local farmers market on Saturday, I couldn't think of anything else that I wanted more.
