This is a great soup using the unexpected combination of pears and apples that are seasoned lightly with sage, ginger and bay.
This soup is great as is, but could be improved. The original recipe is quite sweet and tangy which is good but I prefer a bit more savory. I made one batch exactly as written and found that I needed more so I made a half batch, adding an onion and using chicken stock instead of vegetable to make a more savory blend. When the two were mixed together it came out PERFECT! Everyone loved it! - 27 Nov 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Great tasting soup, the ginger really makes it good! I'll be making this again! - 19 Sep 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Great soup! I too used chicken broth instead of vegetable broth. I also added an onion...soup was a perfect blend of savory with just a hint of sweet. - 01 Oct 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
