It's hard to believe it, but up a few years ago you'd have had a difficult task finding a pumpkin in any shop in Ireland. Nowadays the whole country seems to be scooping out pumpkins and making jack o' lanterns for Halloween. So not being a wasteful lot I came across this recipe. This ones for a tasty soup, just the thing if you've been out 'trick or treating. I've made this for the family and it goes down a treat, so I hope you like and enjoy.... :)

When we first went to try this, we thought it would be slightly sweet. Our taste buds were nicely surprised at how savory this soup is! A really good creamy soup to enjoy on a cool fall day. The smoked bacon really added a depth of flavor everyone is sure to enjoy! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
