    Bergy's Note:

    Try serving this lovely bisque in a hollowed out pumpkin shell. Have the bowls heated and make sure that the bisque is hot. Make it the day before but do not add the cream until you are going to serve.

      I made this soup for my 10 month old. It is a little on the thin side, especially for him, but the taste is wonderful!

      I followed recipe to a tee! I put in 4 cups of cubed pumpkin. Anyhow by the time my pureed pumpkin was combined with the spice and onion mix my pumpkin completely disintegrated in the stock. My soup ended up being broth like that had a little hint of pumpkin ;( I am heating up another batch of pumpkins to puree then will add the "broth" to my puree as needed. I hope it helps!!

      This is FANTASTIC!!!! Try simply using a potato masher instead of a food processor.
