This was such a lovely, simple soup to have on a fall day. So good and so fresh tasting! The recipe did not specify fresh or frozen broccoli. I chose to use one pound fresh broccoli that I roughly chopped. The recipe doesn't say when to put in the cream, it only refers to the water and milk. I know in crockpot cooking one usually has to be careful with sour cream and such so I added the cream during the last 20 mins. or so of cooking (I cooked on low for 6 hours). I also must admit that I upped the amount of cream to a full cup (I had a huge carton in the fridge I needed to use plus I just love cream). I also used my cheap hand held emersion blender to smooth it out a little -- not completely smooth -- still like some texture. Thanks for sharing. I will definitely make again!
