Gingered Pumpkin Soup with Gruyere Cheese

INGREDIENTS:
1 1/2 - 2 Pound Fresh Pumpkin, seed and skin removed, diced
1/2 Pound Yukon Potatoes, peeled and diced
2 Tablespoons of Fresh Ginger, minced
1/2 Sweet Yellow Onion, sliced thin
4 Cups Vegetable Stock or Water
1/4 Cup Orange Juice
1/2 Cup Cream Sherry
1 Cup Heavy Cream
2 Tablespoons Butter, unsalted
4 Ounces Gruyere Cheese, grated, for garnish

PREPARATION:
Heat the butter over medium heat in a large heavy pot. Add the onions and cook until soft and translucent (about 10 minutes). Add the pumpkin, ginger, and potatoes. Cook for another 3 minutes.
Add the stock or water, orange juice, and sherry. Bring mixture to a simmer and cook until pumpkin is soft and easily pierced with a fork (about 1 hour).
Transfer mixture to a blender or food processor and puree until smooth. Transfer back to the pot and stir in the heavy cream. Season with salt and pepper.
Sprinkle Gruyere over individual portions and serve with a hearty bread.
I too, like the Pumpkin Patch Parable by Liz Curtis Higgs
The verse I would like to encourage you with is:
Two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their work:
If one falls down,
his friend can help him up.
But pity the [one] who falls
and has no one to help him up!
Ecclesiastes 4: 9-10
Your friend,
Trina
