A lovely fall soup.

Top Review by Parsley

Oh, my! All the wonderful warm tastes of fall in a bowl! I loved the silky smooth texture. The only substitution that I made was that I used dry white wine in place of apple juice.... it worked very well. I took the suggestion of the dallop of yogurt for garnish. I did not have chives for garnish, so I used parsley flakes. Thanx for a fabulous fall soup!
