Fall's the time for hearty stews, soups, and bisques with lots of pumpkin! I made this up so I would have something to eat for about a week with some stew left over to freeze. I use a 6-oz bag of shredded carrot that I chop even finer in my food chopper, but otherwise this requires minimal measurement. Most of the spices I just shook in but the garlic powder, onion powder, coriander, salt, and pepper were measured. Gala and golden delicious apples are the best for this.
