This is a very good soup. I made mine with apple juice, a bit of extra onions and reduced fat cheddar. Easy to put together and tastes very elegant!

Great fall soup ! I did omit the onions, and replaced with a teaspoon onion powder. I peeled the apples, and potatoes. I also used Granny Smith apples too. Made this also with some fresh apple cider made at the apple orchard nearby. The combination of flavors really stood out. Made for a great soup with Curried Chicken With Apples, and we were completely satisified. Made for PRMR tag.

5 star if you substitute broth for apple cider. I'm definitely not a fan of anything too sweet, and I think kids would really like this more than I did (well, I did still give it 5 stars!). I made no changes to this at all (very unusual for me), but next time I would use veggie broth instead of apple cider. Thank you! Made for ZWT6.
