Specialty Recipe

Creamy Pumpkin Soup

Our most requested fall recipe and a mainstay of our autumn menu. Courtesy of Executive Chef Joe Peterson.

Ingredients
1 medium pumpkin, poached and peeled (or 1 large can of pumpkin puree if you're in a pinch)
1/4 pound butter (1 stick) cut into small pieces
1 cup onion, diced
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 quarts chicken stock
1/4 cup New Hampshire Maple Syrup
1 cup celery, diced
1 cup sherry
3 cups cream
salt and pepper to taste

Poach and peel pumpkin and reserve. Add butter to a soup pan and melt. Add onion and sauté until translucent. Add celery and sauté. Add flour and form roux. Add sherry and de-glaze pan. Add chicken stock; bring to a boil while mixing. Drop to a simmer. Add pumpkin, maple syrup, salt and pepper and blend. Add cream, stir and serve.

For a nice touch, blend softened butter with maple syrup, and swirl in at the table.
