For 3-4 servings you will need:
♥  1kg pumpkin
♥  10-15 chestnuts
♥  1L beef or vegetable bouillon
♥  1 celery branch
♥  1/3 teaspoon cinnamon
♥  1/3 teaspoon nutmeg
♥  salt to taste

1. Peel the pumpkin and chestnuts. There is an easy way to peel chestnuts. First peel just a stip of their shell (open them a bit). Than put them for about 1min to the boiling water. Remove them from the boiling water one by one and while still very hot remove their shell and inner skin. When they are hot everything goes off really easily!
