Slow Cooker Gingered Carrot Soup
Let me start by saying I've loved many of the Betty Crocker recipes I've tried on this website. I'm thankful to this website for helping me easily experiment with new things. That being said, this soup was pretty awful. We're pretty sure it was because of too much ginger in the recipe. Maybe it was supposed to be 2 tsp instead of 2 tbsp?? My mother-in-law tried to help me fix it by adding about 1 cup each of sour cream and unsweetened applesauce, plus a little cinnamon and nutmeg. After those changes, 3 out of 4 of us enjoyed it--yet we all agreed the ginger was still mighty potent. My advice: if you LOVE ginger, enjoy as is. If not, start with only a tsp or 2 of ginger and add more a little bit at a time after all your other ingredients have been mixed.
