Pumpkin Soup


  • 1 small pumpkin
  • 2 ounces butter
  • 1/2 pint of milk
  • 2 onions
  • 1 carrot
  • 2 quarts of water


Peel and slice up the pumpkin, onions, and carrot, put them into a saucepan with half the butter, and sweat the vegetables in it for five minutes, then pour over the boiling water and boil until the vegetables are very soft. Rub through a sieve and return to the saucepan with the milk and some pepper and salt; stir until it boils up.

Just before serving, stir in, in tiny pieces, the rest of the butter and a little lemon juice.

Time: 1 1/2 hours.
