Alix, I didn't' know the base of the soup was cream when I suggested citrus. I really don't think much will solve the problem unfortunately.

I know you didn't, that wasn't posted til later. I just thought I'd better clarify that citrus and cream are not a fun combo!

Hmm. Maybe more potato (flakes) and cheese, some more onion, garlic and regular bacon, milk or broth. Diluting as much as possible.

I've used a maple ham bone in split pea soup, and we liked it.

It gives it kind of a nifty flavor, doesn't it?

I'm not as young as i was, Snip (who is?) and my eyesight is failing. I thought that instead of saying "curry it", you had written "bury it", and I was all ready to post a +1! :)
