This is a very tasty soup that keeps up to 3 days in the fridge, and freezes well. When you ladle this soup into individual bowls, swirl a dollop of sour cream or yogurt into the soup.

A truly delicious soup! I omitted the sugar from this recipe and still found it nicely sweet (thanks to the apples). Since you can always add sugar but can't subtract it I'd recommend not adding it until the end - if you need it. I made my soup with a small fresh pumpkin that I cubed and simmered until soft (25-30 mins.) I potato mashed the whole thing before transfering in batches to my blender. I found the curry flavour and intensity very mild but I also like very hot foods so perhaps some may find this spicy. Instead of sour cream I swirled a bit of low fat yoghurt and grated a pinch of nutmeg on top - pretty and delicious. Enjoy!

I followed one of the reviewers suggestions and intended serving this soup as a first course for Thanksgiving dinner. I spent money and time making this recipe but found it inedible - very seriously. I would not wish this soup on my Mother-in-law and was forced to make another first course.

Very nice soup! I didn't want to make it too sweet so I omitted the sugar added only three apples as well as three large carrots. The carrots really complimented the taste! I also let the soup simmer for 45 minutes instead of 25.

I served this at a bunko meeting. Either you like it or you don't! I followed the recipe as written. I would have added more sugar and less curry.

I really enjoyed this soup. I did add about 1/8 cup of brown sugar and omitted the white sugar and water. I like my pumpkin soups sweet and thick. I also added a shake of crushed red pepper flakes and a dollop of sour cream to my bowl. This is a very quick and tasty soup!

This soup is fantastic! But watch out - it definitely has a kick to it! The combination of cumin and curry along with pumpkin is absolutely divine. Definitely a good fall soup. I thought the apples would stand out more but I hardly tasted them - they just pureed well to make a wonderful thickness. I would have thought there was cream in this soup but it's very low fat!

It's awfully sweet--I ended up cutting out the sugar and reducing the number of apples to get something that suited my taste... A good hearty soup with a touch of the exotic.

There was something missing from the soup I just could put my finger on it. You really could not taste the pumpkin and there was way to much currie in it.
