This was pretty good, but a bit too sweet. I didn't have dried apricots so I used a couple ounces of raisins instead. I also used milk instead of cream and added extra curry. I think it tastes much better hot (cuts down on the sweetness somehow). Perhaps next time I will try with a tarter apple.
A different soup, not for everyone I imagine. My boys didn't care for it, but my guests raved. I added curry to taste and so used less then called for. Served soup alongside pumpkin buscuits and a nice white wine called "Evolution" that's put out by Sokol Blossor vineyards. All in all lovely fall meal. Oh, the soup improves with age, so while it's nice the day of it's fantastic the next day.
