Just tried this one busy week-end as we had a- lot going on. Turned out we did't have this till a few days later. I think it improved the flavor.

Very good, I also pureed the soup as jerry did. The only thing I will do differently is cook the carrots before hand

Great taste! The only thing I would change is to cook the veggies before putting them in the crockpot, with the other ingredients. I also used a handblender at the end to puree some of the soup(my preference).
