"I wanted a soup that could cook in the slow cooker all night. I did not cook the sausage beforehand and it was in there for roughly eight hours. Interesting flavour, but I made the mistake of adding the total amount of maple syrup that the recipe asked for. Very sweet! Next time I'd definitely cut that in half. I added triple the amount of pumpkin to give it a thicker consistency (and hopefully to cut back on the overpowering flavour of the maple syrup); otherwise it was kind of watery. I also added a clove of garlic instead of garlic powder. I do like the potential of the soup so that's why I am still giving it four stars."

"I liked this soup. Nice flavor and good consistency. I used a little less than half a cup of maple syrup and it was still just a tad sweet. Next time I'll use probably a quarter cup of maple syrup. And I just might try adding rice to it...I think it might go well with this soup."

"Very interesting - I added this one to "My Recipes" - great flavour! I did cut back to 1/4c of maple syrup. It's been perfect frozen for lunches and late night suppers"
