    A wonderful and delicious soup that is relatively easy to prepare. I had some lovely thick-sliced country-style bacon, which was perfect in this soup. I followed the recipe as posted. I used a stick immersion blender to puree the soup. Oddly, I didn't really taste the sherry. This soup was very reminiscent of split pea soup, and really very tasty. Thanks for sharing. It was perfect on a cold January evening!
