Ginger Pear Pumpkin Soup

This is the season for Pumpkin Pie Spiced Everything, isn’t it?  Marisolio has a wonderful Pumpkin Pie Spiced Balsamic that is a must for your cooking this autumn.  Delicate nutmeg, allspice and cinnamon perfume this festive white balsamic.  This product is a seasonal one for us, meaning that we have it in fall and into winter, but not the rest of the year.

It is terrific drizzled over butternut squash or as a glaze for pork chops, but my favorite way to use it is in Ginger Pear Pumpkin Soup.   Try this on the next cool fall day, and I don’t think you will be disappointed.

Ginger Pear Pumpkin Soup

4 T. butter
1 onion, minced
1 cup celery, diced
1 cup carrot, diced

3 cups or more chicken broth
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup heavy cream
