      I had this recipe before and lost it so happy to find it here. I have made it tons of times. I always saute the onion, celery and carrot for at least 20 min on a low heat to build the flavors then follow as directed. If I don't have pears I use apples. The other thing I do is strain it at the end. Makes a really velvety consistency. There is only a couple of tbsp of stuff to strain out but it saves you from getting a string of celery and again it makes a wonderful consistency. I don't use the maple syrup the sweet potatoes make it sweet enough. Love this soup.

      A perfect 10 is what I'd give this soup! I found the recipe in a thread discussing an over-abundance of pears and what to do with them; so glad that I clicked SAVE and had the chance to make it on this soggy/chilly day. Followed the directions exactly; tasted it and added a pinch of cayenne pepper to it to give it the tiniest bit of heat. Served with grilled ham and Swiss cheese sandwiches with cranberry mustard and a bitter green salad. We all begged for more! I'll be making this at least once a month, it's THAT good!
