Ingredients

Directions

  1. Turn the oven on to 350* F
  2. Cut the pumpkins in half. Place them cut side down on a baking sheet. Poke the outside of the pumpkin with a fork to allow steam to release.
  3. Place the pumpkins in the center rack of your oven. Cook for 35-45 minutes or until pumpkins are fork tender.
  4. Pull pumpkins from oven and allow to cool, before scrapping the meat from the pumpkins.
  5. In a stock pot drizzle a little oil in the bottom. Turn the stove to medium/low. While the pot is heating up place the chopped bacon into the pot. Cook down the bacon until it’s crispy. Remove bacon from pot and save for later.
  6. In the same pot, place the onion, garlic, and carrots. Allow to cook until onions are clear.
  7. Add in the pumpkin and stir until combined. Add half the stock and let simmer on low for 20 minutes.
  8. Add in the rest of the stock and simmer for another 20 minutes.
  9. With a stick blender blend the soup together until smooth.
  10. Add the cinnamon, nutmeg, cayenne, salt, pepper, and maple syrup.
  11. Simmer on low for 10 minutes.
  12. Add in butter and cream. Fully mix in and simmer for 10 minutes.
  13. Enjoy your homemade soup. Add bacon and pumpkin seeds to the top for a fun crunch and flavor.
