      I just tried this. I found it in the Feb. food and wine mag, and let me tell you! This is so very good. Wish there was a pic of it like there is in the magazine! I didn't want to buy a large amount of apple cider cause we don't drink it, so I used apple sauce. I advise grating extra smoked cheddar cheese, also because you'll want a lot garnishing it! The photo shows a couple raw apple slices on top of each bowl of soup also, as a garnish. The apples are unpeeled by the way. If you like apple cider try it that way. This is so good, that I am making it for my son and dil in May for their anniversary dinner that I am doing. Gosh, there just aren't words enough to describe how delicious this was. We just fixed a salad with it, and it filled us up so full we couldn't have seconds! Its a good thing it keeps good.I recomend it highly.
