The Kent Website since 1999
If you're looking for a recipe for a warming winter soup rather than a song by Kate Nash this is the page for you. We feature a traditional Halloween pumpkin soup recipe. It is regarded as a perfect pick you up after a night at a firework display or an evening trick or treating. There is just a quick issue to pick up on before we start with the recipe. There are some inconsistencies with the use of the term pumpkin and winter squash in the US and the UK. The pumpkin is though to be a plant native to North America where is has been used for several thousand years.
This is just one of our soup recipes you can find many more in the main Kentish Recipe Directory. If you've tried this soup or have your own version we'd welcome your comments.
