I went apple picking over the weekend and now have a case of amazing local apples. It’s a perfect day to make my first soup of the season.
1 small onion chopped
2 large apples (smoke house work best
2 small sweet potatoes
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 Tablespoon Honey
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
4 Cups Broth (chicken, beef or veggie)
Pour oil into a medium size pot. Turn heat on and add onion. Allow onion to cook a few minutes or until they begin to become transparent. As onions cook peel and chop apples and sweet potatoes into large chunks. When onions are ready add sweet potatoes, apple, salt and pepper. Stir and continue to cook together for five minutes. Then add broth. Bring to a boil and then lower flame to a light simmer. Place cover on pot and cook at this temp for 1.5 hours. Now shut heat off and either purée with food processor or blender until soup is smooth and creamy. Cook uncovered for another ten minutes. Serve hot.
