Annie's chickeny pumpkin soup

One chicken carcass with almost all meat taken off already
One small/medium pumpkin
Four carrots
1/4 pint double cream
Spices

1. Put chicken carcass in a pan with approx. 2 pints water, salt and a few herbs. Boil for 45 mins or 1 hour. Remove bones and assist any remaining bits of meat to fall off into the water.

2. Peel pumpkin, remove seeds and chop into small pieces. Peel and grate carrots. Place pumpkin and carrots in the chickeny water, and add salt, pepper and "steak spices" (something reasonably hot and pungent) to taste.

3. Boil until pumpkin turns entirely mushy. Add cream, and simmer for a further 5 minutes.

4. Serve with crusty brown bread.
