I always have to try what sounds like odd food combinations so this was one I just had to try. It comes from a recipe I clipped out of a cooking magazine years back. I put my own spin on it by adding wht white wine.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Take the apple peelings and combine them with 2-1/2 cups of water.
  2. Simmer over medium heat for approximately 20 minutes, Strain and set aside.
  3. Combine the oil, fennel, leek, celery and green apples in a heavy bottomed saucepan. Saute over medium heat for 20 minutes or until soft.
  4. Add white wine and reduce by half.
  5. Pour in the apple stock you have set aside and continue reducing by half again, this will strengthen the flavor of the soup.
  6. Add the heavy cream and simmer 10-15 minutes more, the soup will start to thicken slightly.
  7. When the soup has cooled, ladle it into the blender and puree.
  8. Strain through a fine strainer, season and garnish each bowl with toasted almond slices.
