My wife regularly makes pumpkin soup for me, it has the most beautiful taste. but the last three times she has made it, that taste has gone.

Anyone else experience this? Could it be the pumpkins themselves? I can't think of anything else. She buys them from the local market.

Perhaps she has switched to a new slow acting poison that imparts a different flavor profile ?

Not all pumpkins are the same.

Kabocha variety are quite expensive and have a deep, rich creamy taste.
The ones they use for Halloween have hardly any flavour and if you make a soup out of them you would be disappointed.

Try this recipe. It's one of my favorites. Plenty of taste.
