Autumn Harvest Soup with Candied Cranberries

Autumn Harvest Soup with Candied Cranberries * Slim Pickin's Kitchen

Prepare yourself for fall soup face plantage…

Because the moment the flavor of this autumn harvest soup hits you, you’re going to plunge your face straight into the bowl and slurp it up like mommy’s little piggy, just a oink, oink, oinking all the while and not giving two cahoots to who’s listening.

It’s like a giant frickin’ basket full of fall favorites fell into a crock pot and magically created this bowl full of yum. You’ll instantly be in an over sized sweater and fuzzy boots crunching through colorful leaves on a crisp autumn day in Vermont.

It doesn’t matter if it’s still 1,000 degrees where you live. After eating this soup, you’ll be ready for the changing seasons.

If you’re not, then something is definitely wrong with you.

Autumn Harvest Soup with Candied Cranberries * Slim PIckin's Kitchen

Oh.em.gee. because the honeycrisp apples! And the butternut squash! And the pumpkin! And holy crap, the cranberries!!!

The cranberries sparkle and burst in your mouth like giant pop rocks, and they transform this soup into supernatural territory. They truly take the soup from being ordinary to absolutely over the moon extraordinary.

I mean, those little beauties basically soak in a brown sugar bath overnight.

As Ina Garten would say, how bad can that be?
