This is a wonderful soup. Quick, easy, minumum ingredients, crockpot friendly, kid friendly, what else could you ask for!! Oh, and inexpensive. I doubled it. I used fresh winter squash and used the recipe from here for 'Squashed Squash' to cook it quickly. Great method! Then put all the ingredients into my crockpot. I didn't have chervil so I just used grd cloves, allspice, and cinnamon.
