Delicious! This recipe is originally from Gourmet Magazine, November 1996.
This is really very good. I didn't know exactly what to expect but this mix of ingredients really work with ( for me) the exception of the ham. I enjoyed the taste and texture of the smooth soup and the chunks and flavor of the ham distracted from that. Other than that I omitted the Sherry as I don't care for it. I think that if you try this you will be very pleased with the depth of flavor and it couldn't be more perfect for Fall.
A fantastic and surprising soup! I made this exactly as posted, except I added the ham after 10 minutes, because I really wanted it to blend in. Full of flavor and a nice treat! Made for ZWT 8.
i made this soup for one and i still have alot left for freezer . good soup. DO add pumpkin seeds they help soup alot i left soup chunky as im only one eating it this is an easy meal that tastes great
