    Make sure you allow enough time for the onions to carmelize and reach that rich, buttery texture. From Nicolette Manescalchi,

      Made this for a lunch after being outside. This was a great soup. I did halve this for serving purpose, used 1 1/2 pounds onions, and used dry sherry. Used apple cider that was made on the spot at the apple orchard. Great lunch on a day where it was 25 degrees, and snowing, and windy. Very nice comfort food for this tome of the year. I should of made the full amount for tomorow for lunch. Made for PRMR.

      This is such an amazingly delicious soup! I made it today after a cold front came through with a raw rain. It was so heart warming and true comfort food! I used a granny smith apple as I had it on hand and I loved the flavor the apple and cider added to the soup. Thank you for posting! Made for Photo tag.
