Apple Pumpkin Soup

Relish autumn’s color and flavors right in your bowl with this creamy, golden soup from Spearville, Kansas field editor Pat Habiger. Just blend the ingredients and chill overnight. “For a treat, serve in hollowed-out small pumpkins,” suggests Pat.

    I was very excited to make this recipe because I really like pumpkin and apples. But unfortunately, I will not be making this one again. My family of four, 2 adults and 2 small children, did not care for this at all. I think I will try to make something with the leftovers though, maybe a quick bread or some muffins.

    Been making this for several years without the onion. I just thought it was better without it. winter squash works well in place of pumpkin.

    This was pretty good. I like it, but I thought it was kind of thick. But I guess that's how it's supposed to be. It's a great autumn food.

    Good, but I added a dollop of sour cream and some parmesan cheese when I served it to make it great!
