      Wasn't that impressed when I took my first slurp of this, but it really grew on me. It's very mild, and I think I was looking for something with a little more pizazz -- but this really was delicious (in a mild way). I only put in four cups of broth, because I wanted a thicker soup; as it was, it was still a little thinner that I would have liked. But the balance of flavors was great -- the apples were present, but not overpowering; the butternut squash predominated; the shallots/onions gave it just a bit of richness. I'll definitely make it again. Thanks for posting this!
