  1. Heat butter and bacon grease in a large pot over medium heat; cook and stir carrots and onion in the melted butter-bacon grease mixture until onion is translucent, 5 to 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add 1/2 the thyme to carrot-onion mixture; cook and stir until thyme is fragrant, 10 to 15 seconds.
  2. Stir chicken stock, sweet potato, ginger paste, remaining thyme, salt, and pepper into carrot-onion mixture. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until sweet potato is soft and flavors of soup have blended, 15 to 20 minutes. Mix orange juice, brown sugar, red pepper flakes, and cinnamon into soup.
  3. Puree soup using a hand blender until smooth; mix in more chicken stock to reach desired consistency. Stir half-and-half into soup.

Excellent recipe as written. I didn't change anything. Doubled the batch so I could freeze some. Hoping that freezing won't change the consistency of it. Will make this again. Great comfort food for cold chilly weather.

We loved the flavor!! My second batch I used a vegetable stock and some crisped tempeh bits(to replace the bacon fat and butter) and olive oil for the vegetarians in the family. Thank you so much for this recipe.

This was delicious! I followed it almost to a tee except I used dried thyme, didn't have fresh, and I omitted the cinnamon because I thought it might overpower it. I think you could go without the bacon grease to make it healthier. I'm glad I doubled the recipe, made a big pot.
