With some modifications I made this soup 5 stars. Maybe if organic carrots and organic pumpkin are used which are very sweet on their own there would be no need to add some brown sugar but I felt it needed it and added some after adding sea salt to taste, freshly ground black pepper & allspice in place of nutmeg to be intoxicant free. I used a sweet pumpkin, probably extra cooking onion, plus the rest of the ingredients. I did not top with creme fraiche but added a chunk of sweet butter (unsalted) to melt into the soup before serving which added extra tastiness to make it to 5 stars. Made for Bargain Basement October 2011.
