Here's another chilled soup from *The Carnival Experience* cookbook by Peter Leypold (Exec Chef of Carnival Cruise Lines) that I did not try, but it is both unusual & intriguing. Although we don't really have any of them here in Iceland, doesn't this look like it would be perfect on a hot summer evening? (Times were not given, have been estimated & the chill time is not included as it may vary according to your needs) *Enjoy* !

We liked this but the only thing is the apple flavour got a little lost, especially with reducing the soup. Next time, I think I'll use half chicken stock, half apple juice to up the apple-ness and double the spices as they got a little lost too. Thanks for a new summer appy! Made for ZWT 8
