Our family loves this recipe! Tonight I skipped the bacon for the first time and overcooked (to the point of being nearly carmelized) the onions, carrots, celery and apple. It was unanimously the best batch yet! We have some new diet limitations so had to skip the dairy this time, but it was not missed a bit. The first two times I made it exactly as written and it was excellent that way as well.

We make this at least once a week--and my husband requests it more often than that! We make it very thick, so it's almost more of a puree. Since we're working on healthier eating, we eliminate the bacon and replace the whipping cream with reduced fat sour cream. With a hearty multi-grain roll, this is a perfect fall lunch or dinner for us! Also, it smells SO delicious as it simmers!

Wow, this is FANTASTIC! I roasted the Squash first at 450 for 45 minutes prior to adding to the mix, and blending. I also added some chopped green onions to the sour cream and bacon garnish. Beautiful, and oh my gosh, so flavorful! Served with some sliced crusty bread. Perfect Fall Dish!

I made a few changes to this recipe which seemed to taste just fine. I didn't want to add the honey or nutmeg, and substituted the whipping cream for 1/2 cup of coconut milk. I also added some curry powder for some added favour. Tasted great!

Absolutely love this soup. I went ahead and substituted full fat Coconut milk in place of the cream and couldn't tell the difference at all. My family practically fights over this soup every time I make it. In place of the cheese garnish I simply process a bit of pine nuts and sprinkle them on top.

This has a delicious blend of flavors. The large variety of vegetables and fruits makes it very healthy.I will definitely make again. I am considering making a large batch and canning it (minus the dairy products). The dairy can be added at the time of reheating.

I tried this recipe again tonight and it is by far the best soup I have ever tasted. I used sour cream instead of whipping cream. The soup has a definite bite to it - spices would need to be minimized if you are making this for young children. The last time I made it I made a double batch and froze it. Freezes extremely well and when reheated on the stove top, tasted as though it had just been made. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe.

The soup was good but I had to add a little more whip cream. Its better to use the fresh squash instead of frozen and I added some coconut milk. The results were good.

This was yummy and really easy! The kids and adults loved it alike. I left out the honey and it was delicious all the same. I will definitely use this recipe again. Thank you!
