    luvinlif2k's Note:

    This recipe is our favorite from The Williamsburg Cookbook. We had to buy the cookbook after having this at the King's Arms Tavern in Colonial Williamsburg. It is quite tasty served hot with toasted breadsticks (see recipe titled "Colonial Soup-Servers") This soup can be served hot or cold. It is even good re-heated.

      AWESOME recipe!! I stuck to the recipe (but doubled it) and it turned out delicious. I made it for a cold-weather outdoor potluck after an equestrian event, and it was a huge hit.

      Yum!! Nice light peanut flavor. I prefer a more intense flavor, but might have ruined it so stuck to the main peanut flavor. A couple of tweaks. I use a butter flavored olive oil for healthier cooking. Also during the initial simmer I added a tsp garlic and a tsp of pepper flakes. I also used a little more thickener and milk instead of cream since I didn't have any on hand. Lastly, I added the juice of 1/2 lemon at the end to brighten it up.

      i expected this soup to have an overpowering peanut butter taste, but not at all! just rich, creamy, and satisfying - perfect for a cold night! i saw another peanut soup recipe on this site where a reviewer suggested the addition of cumin - i tried this and thought it really enhanced the flavors nicely, so give it a try!

      update: i just made this soup again, and this time added some lemon juice (a lot of traditional peanut soup recipes use lemon). it really helped to cut the strong flavor and fat of the peanut butter; i'll definitely use this addition from now on!
