Pumpkin Apple Soup

It’s that time of year when apples are fresh for the picking and so are the pumpkins. What better way to celebrate this season than with a delicious pumpkin apple soup!

With life getting a little busier, kids going back to school, and shorter days, you can cook this delicious soup a lot faster if using a pressure cooker. Everything is faster, better, and tastier in a pressure cooker. (Can you tell I like pressure cookers)?
