This year I had a bumper crop of pumpkins. My first attempt at a pumpkin soup came out pretty boring. When I reviewed this recipe, the use of sweet potato was very appealing. I made this soup per the recipe except I left out the bacon (didn't have, didn't want to buy a pound for 1 slice, and it seemed a bit off-putting). I was very impressed with the result. It does seem to be missing something (bacon perhaps?). I stirred a small amount of orange juice into a sample; I liked the addition, my wife didn't. Perhaps a bit of orange zest? Thanks for the posting.
