There are not many soups that I can make for my boyfriend that he will eat. Normally I ask him first if he like what I am going to make. This time I just made the soup and he was so happy that I had made it. It was so creamy and the flavors mixed so well that he asked me to make more so he could take it on the truck (He has a company that drives 18-wheelers) to have. This way he can eat the soup when he isn't home. I have to give this soup a 5 for making him happy. Plus it takes so little time in making. I thought something this good would take longer to make but I was sure surprised. Will be making it more often.

Knowing my family's taste, I made this soup without the brown sugar. I used apple juice in place of the apple nectar and added a pinch of garlic powder. It was just sweet enough, but not too sweet. Served it with banana bread, and everyone loved it! This is definitely what I will be serving for Thanksgiving Eve dinner. Wonderful soup! It is very satisfying.

Delicious Soup, but....

by K. Katherine , CLEARWATER, FL on Nov. 2006

a little to sweet for my diabetic husband. The rest of the family loved it and some asked for seconds! Make ahead (day or 2 before big dinner), keeps well in fridge and is actually better the second or third day! (IF you can keep it that long!). YUMMY.
