1 large onion, chopped
1/2 pound of bacon, chopped
1 (15 ounce) can of pumpkin
1 cup water
2 cups apple cider
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
4 cubes chicken bouillon
1 apple, peeled, seeded and chopped
Dash of liquid smoke
salt, to taste
2 tsp white pepper
1/3 cup crystallized ginger, chopped

Saute onion and bacon in large pot. Add remaining ingredients, then
cover and simmer for 1 hour, stirring frequently. Remove to blender, and blend

pot and heat through. May be served with a dollop of sour cream on top.
When selecting a pumpkin for a recipe, choose a small, deep
orange-colored pumpkin, that's not too soft or discolored. The smaller pumpkins have a
sweeter flavor, and are much better for cooking than the big
"jack-o-lantern" pumpkins.
