- ½ Can Pumpkin
- This was leftover.
- Hence, the decision to make Pumpkin Soup.
- 1 Pint Chicken Broth
- Store Bought
- This could stand alone.
- So, the real question is whether or not my additions were an improvement or a detriment.
- 2 Tablespoons Cocktail Sauce
- By Others
- Ketchup & Horseradish
- With a Shrimp or two freshly dragged through for additional flavour.
- 1.5 Tablespoons Garlic Sauce
- I no longer remember what this was originally made for.
- And I never knew what was in it.
- 1 Tablespoon Bacon Grease
- If it is not clear, I was cleaning out the refrigerator as I made this.
- I was going to throw the Bacon Grease away.
- But, yeah.
- A little fat floating on top would be nice.
- 2 Tablespoons Hardcore Goose Drippings
- The Good Stuff
- Top Shelf Drippings
- Super Condensed
- I was going to use Ginger as the kicker.
- But then, I remembered this stuff.
Prior to the addition of the Goose Drippings, the Ketchup from the Cocktail Sauce dominated. But now, it just tastes like a Deep Beef Broth with a hint of Goose. So, like, I probably could tell folks it was a Heavy Reindeer Broth, Light Reindeer Gravy, or something like that.
"I don't know how it got on my roof. But I thought it was a burglar, so I shot it.
It's a little bit rich, maybe almost too complicated. But I could see this being served in a High End Restaurant. I would recommend a smallish bowl served with a roll or two.
Also, one might want to change the name to Harvest Delight or something equally creative. There is not a hint of Pumpkin in this stuff. I mean, it tastes great, but there is not the slightest hint of Pumpkin.
A wayward Egg Yolk became available, so I mixed that in after the first serving. I have no expectation of being able to taste it.
I did not.
