So, I have been playing around again and come up with a new recipe or a revamped old one. Either way I like it. But I need new victims...I mean test subjects...no, helpers... Anyone want to give it a try and let me know what you think?
Cold Pumpkin Creme Soup
1 - 15oz can pumpkin
1c cream or half and half
1/4 c apricot brandy
Puree the first 4 ingredients together in a blender. Pour into a pitcher, gentle stir in brandy and chill, covered, in refrigerator. About 3 hours. It will thicken.
When serving, garnish with creme fraiche swirls and crumbled gingersnap cookies. You don't have to but it definately adds something that I think it needs.
I'm thinking that sounds pretty good for tonight, especially since we just got a couple crabs.
1 Large onion, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
3 cups corn, fresh or frozen
2 T butter or 1 T butter/1 T oil of your choice
1 ½ c potatoes, cubed
1 ½ c. water
2 chicken flavored bouillon cubes (you can substitute chicken broth instead of the water and cubes)
½ t. dried thyme
Salt and pepper to taste
2 cups milk
1 cup half-and-half
Dash of Tabasco (optional)
1 pound fresh cooked crab.
Sauté onion and celery in the butter in a stew pot until tender.
Add the next seven ingredients, cover and simmer 15 minutes.
Add milk and half-and-half; cook, stirring constantly until it’s completely heated. Add crab just before serving
Yield - ten cups
