Ok this soup came out great!! I followed the recipe mostly…..except I didn’t use chicken stock I used some butternut squash soup (I know not homemade I’m sorry! But it’s what I had on hand that I thought would help). I felt that the apple was a bit overpowering, and wanted to use a squash soup to balance it out. Next time I make this I would def. use a lot more squash and a lot fewer apples. I did not peel the apples, cause apple skins are good for you. I also did not reduce as much as the recipe said, I cooked it til it looked good, and then added cream followed the rest. I think for this time I made a good decision switching the chicken stock for squash soup, but next time I’ll just make sure to have more squash on hand. Still tasted nummy
Oh I also roasted the seeds, they are SOO much better than pumpkins seeds – the hulls seem a lot easier to chew and roasted in the oven w/ some butter, salt and pepper were so yummy!!
