  4. Add a couple pats of butter and lots of pepper.
  5. Wrap sections in foil and cook until tender.
  6. Scoop out and serve or mash.

Serving Tips and Suggestions:

  • Serve with mash potatoes and a grilled steak.

My soup has had the unfortunate effect of having people like it so much there is none left for the freezer. I take about a pound of good smoked back bacon and a couple of onions and fry them gently in butter in the base of a large pan until just soft.

Then I add about 3 pounds of pumpkin flesh and about 2pounds of potatoes. Cover the lot with vegetable stock and simmer until everything is very tender. 

Give it a quick whizz with a blender and add about a pint of double cream. When I made about a gallon using those quantities last year expecting to freeze most in individual portions. I was left with one single portion. This was after people who do not like pumpkinhad tasted just a mouthful and ended up gorging on the stuff.

All the best, Jane
