Directions

  1. In large saucepan, heat oil. Add apples, potato, celery, onion, and thyme. Saute 10 minutes.
  2. Stir in wine and simmer 2 minutes; add broth and simmer about 40-45 minutes or until everything is very tender.
  3. Using a blender or food processor, puree soup mixture, but leave just a little bit lumpy. Return to saucepan.
  4. Over very low heat, stir in cheese and cream.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk together milk and flour; add to soup and stir. Add nutmeg, and pepper. Cook just until heated through--do not boil or cheese will curdle.
  6. Serve.

Excellent Soup! Made it for a dinner party. The only thing I did different was add white cheddar, which I liked the more white color, a pinch of thyme and then garnished with bacon crumbles and a pinch of the white cheddar and a small thyme sprig, just so people new the flavor. The bacon just looked pretty. Excellent recipe, great flavors. The wine just really topped it off for me.

I originally saw this recipe (or a similar one) in an insert that came with Prevention magazine. Distinguishing characteristics being simple ingredients and only thyme, pepper, and nutmeg as spices. I omitted the cream and wine and added an extra potato for starchy/creaminess. This is a great soup for kids and adults since the flavor isn't a spicy flavor but more a savory tangy yummy flavor that appeals to all ages. Thanks parsley
