    Way to go Chris. I have some apples on the edge of being thrown out. Didn't want to make Apple Betty, but I could chop them up and add them to my veggie soup tomorrow and see how that works. Thanks for the idea.

    Sounds good. I've never heard apricots described that way - will have to check my label.

    Sounds yummy. I'm wanting to make pea soup but still too hot here for soup or chili.
